About This Campaign

OOPS! You are on the 2018 Women Build campaign. Women Build 2019 is here!





-------------- 2019 Volunteer days will open soon. Go here for more information --------------------






Construction on the 14th Women Build house will start in July 2018, and fundraising is going on now. Help us build!

To help build:
• Team Leaders: To schedule your team's day, email kbraley@rochesterhabitat.org for a list of available dates (June-September).
• Team Members & Individuals: Click volunteer to find your team's build day, and additional "all women welcome" days. You will use the same login as your fundraising page, but will have to give additional information to volunteer. (Be sure you are signed-in, and you'll only have to fill out the volunteer application once.)
• If you don't see your team's build day, have your team leader email kbraley@rochesterhabitat.org.

To help fundraise: Start your own team or join a public team today! We raise most of the money online, but we'll also invite you to our Women Build events. Visit the Women Build 2018 - Fundraising page to help us fund this house!
