Transforming lives and communities
Women Build brings together women (and men) from all walks of life to address safe and affordable housing, while encouraging women to participate in construction of the home. The funds for construction of the home are primarily raised by Blount County women who serve on our Women Build committee. Since 2005, Blount County women have raised the funds and constructed a new home for a qualified, mortgage-ready family every other year! What an accomplishment!
Committee members also organize and coordinate volunteers for the build. Previous constriction experience is not necessary to volunteer; volunteers will work along side our construction staff, volunteer team leaders, and the buyer of the home to complete construction.
2017 Women Build will be located at 231 W Newcomen Street
Women Build Luncheon
Blount County Habitat for Humanity holds an annual Women Build luncheon to raise funds for construction, and also to celebrate the recipient(s) and participants of past and present builds.
Our 2017 luncheon will be held April 18th from 11:30 – 1:00 at the Airport Hilton. The luncheon not only includes deliciously prepared food, but also a fun program and heartwarming speakers.
