A program of Habitat for Humanity International, Women Build enables women to help eliminate poverty housing by building homes and communities. Through Women Build, women volunteers and homeowners gain the confidence and skills to lay bricks, pound nails, raise walls and create hope. Evergreen Habitat built its first Women Build home in 2012 and completed their second home in the summer of 2017. Women Build is a great way for women to have fun, help a family, and make a difference in a hands-on way. You’ll get to meet the family you are helping face-to-face. You can spend time with friends and colleagues, and make new friends while you work on the house. Plus you’ll learn construction skills you can use in your own home.

Women Build also raises funds to build homes for hard-working families in need by hosting fundraisers, such as the Women Build Holiday Luncheon or the Women Build Bingo Night. The Women Build Committee consists of community-minded women who want to make a difference here in Vancouver-construction skills are not necessary!

The committee meets monthly on every third Wednesday. Guests and/or new members are always welcome!

Mission Statement

Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, community, and hope. We build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.

Description

Through volunteer labor and tax-deductible donations of money and materials, Habitat builds and rehabilitates simple, decent homes with the help of the homeowner. Habitat houses are sold to families at no profit, financed with affordable, no-interest loans. The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments are recycled into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses.
