How Habitat for Humanity of NWI Women Build Helps Struggling Families

About 95% of the families who seek to partner with Habitat for Humanity of NWI are single mothers.  Through Women Build, you help create a path to affordable homeownership possible for those that wouldn't have otherwise.  With your support, we can provide a hand-up to women in our community to build strength, stability and self-reliance by becoming first-time homebuyers. Habitat homeowners help build their homes alongside volunteers like you. Together, we build a safe, affordable home that partner families (Habitat homeowners) will buy with an affordable mortgage. That mortgage is 0% interest, includes taxes and insurance, AND won’t exceed 30% of a family's income, widely recognized as the threshold for affordable housing.  Partner family mortgage payments are re-invested into future partner family homes!

Together, Habitat for Humanity of NWI and YOU will empower women, stabilize families, and strengthen our communities!

Women Build offers a unique opportunity to bond with your friends, family, peers AND your community. We provide the tools and expertise — You provide the hands  and heart.

Each Habitat home costs about $170,000 to build.  A portion of the funds needed to build is raised with the help of Women Build teams.  We ask each team to raise $2,500 (or more!) and to join us on one of our Habitat home construction sites for a day of learning, camaraderie and giving back! 

Get your friends, family and co-workers to join you in this crucial work to empower women, families and communities.  You'll share an experience you'll never forget!
