who we are
Alachua Women Build was founded in the mid-1990's by a group of women who recognized both the need for good, affordable housing in our community and the potential for women to take an active role in meeting this need. Hundreds of women of all ages and backgrounds, including the homeowner-to-be, participate in each build and are mentored in construction techniques.
what we do
Alachua Women Build is an all-volunteer program of Habitat for Humanity that raises the funds for and builds houses in partnership with hard-working families often headed by women in need of safe, affordable homes. Women empower women: volunteers and the homeowner gain new skills, self-reliance, and a boost in self-confidence. The first house was built in 1996, and since then thirteen more have been completed.
