Our team leader spots are full for 2017, but share your interest in the 2018 project by emailing womenbuild@indyhabitat.org.

Get involved in the 2017 Women Build!

Be a part of the 4th annual Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity Women Build!

We will be building a house for future homeowner Andrea and her daughters, and we are kicking off this year’s event with a Panel Build (where you will be able to see the walls, literally, go up as volunteers construct the panels for Andrea’s house).

Join us, April 29th from 11:30-1:30 in the parking lot of the Old National Centre to celebrate the kick-off of this year’s build!

We are honored to have Karen and Mina, mother and daughter construction team from Two Chicks and a Hammer/GoodBones join us for this inaugural event.

Grab a bite from the Market District food truck, a drink from Sun King Brewing Company and shop at the Garish Gal boutique truck all while watching the wall panels being raised right in the parking lot!

This is truly a celebration – so bring your family and tell your friends to stop by to support the Indy Women Build and learn more about Andrea and the 350+ women who are participating!

A portion of proceeds from the event will go directly to the 2017 Women Build and help reach the overall goal of $125,000!

Construction of the Women Build home relies on support from more than 300 women volunteers, who fund and build the house. Ways to get involved in Women Build are:

  • Lend a hand to the Women Build by offering your expertise or company support through an in-kind donation. To discover what Habitat needs for construction and volunteer recognition, please contact womenbuild@indyhabitat.org.
  • Anyone is invited to get involved as a Women Build advocate! Spread the word and follow progress by using #IndyWomenBuild.
  • Sign up to join the project as a team leader in 2018! Each team leader recruits a team of women to help raise funds and construct the home on their build day. Read more about the team leader role or email us with your interest or  questions.
Still have questions or interested in becoming a team leader next year? Contact us or check out our Women Build FAQ.
Thank you to our 2016 Women Builders!
