Women Build 2023

Women Build

Women Build 2024 will be taking place from September 16-19 in Calgary’s northeast community of Livingston. This event brings together and empowers women from across Southern Alberta by participating in the construction of Habitat homes. Women Build is a signature event in support of affordable homeownership for hard-working families in our communities.  

Who Women Build helps

Right now, in Calgary, 1 in 5 families cannot afford their current housing situation. We need four times the current supply of affordable housing to meet the demand. Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta helps meet this demand through our affordable homeownership program. We provide no down payment, no interest mortgages which never exceed 30% of the family’s income.  

Since 1990, Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta has provided homes for more than 385 families, impacting the lives of more than 1,100 children. Of those families, more than 140 are single parent families and 97% of Habitat single-parent households are female-led. 

A valuable volunteering experience

Women Build is a unique four-day event bringing team members to an active construction site. Activities will depend on the stage of construction and can vary from framing and drywalling to finishing and landscaping. It doesn’t matter whether participants have previous construction experience or have never handled a power tool before, everyone will be supervised and trained for a fun, safe, and productive day on-site! 

Participants will work with colleagues and friends under the guidance of experienced Habitat Crew Leaders for a rewarding experience improving the communities we share.
