WOMEN BUILD PROGRAM

Women Build 2021

What a year it has been! While we would love to bring you the hands-on and exciting Women Build program that you know and love, this year we had to adapt to our current situation.

Thank you to everyone that joined our Virtual Women Build 2021 event and we hope you enjoyed learning the highly requested training of patching a hole in drywall.

 

Another "Thank You" to those women that have chosen to fundraise for Women Build 2021. Remember, we are here to help your fundraiser be successful - if you need something from us, let us know.  We want to award those pink tool incentives!

 

It is our hope that we can return to the amazing Women Build program that we all know and love in 2022. Until then, stay safe.

If the Women Build Program is brand new to you, click the pink button to view the Women Build Handbook for our 2021 program and how you can support the Habitat mission. 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 were fantastic years for our program and we are working hard to bring a fun, safe and virtual WB in 2021. Our fundraising goal is $15,000 and to build ONE WB house this year.

Check back next year for 2022 Women Build Lowe's Clinic info.

Jill Hinojosa and her family are the partner family for Habitat home #73 and were our Women Build 2020 family. We just raised their walls in a virtaul ceremony and construction is in FULL SWING! 

Our 2021 WB project will be for a survivor of the 2020 Almeda Fire and the home will be built within the burn scar area. We hope to begin accepting applications for that build in the near furture.

APOSTLES BUILD PROJECT

What is the Apostles Build Project?

 

The Apostles Build is a partnership that allows twelve (or more) individual churches to join together to build and fund a home for a local family. As Jesus’ original apostles were charged with spreading the word about Him, our twelve apostles are charged with assisting in Habitat’s mission to provide shelter for God’s children.

How can your church get involved?

 

PRAYER- We believe in the power of prayer to help us build on faith.
LABOR- Over 2,000 volunteer hours go into building each home and over 400 volunteers.
MEALS- For the volunteers on the days of service.
SPONSORSHIP- There are four levels of partnership to accommodate all church sizes and budgets!

What does Habitat Provide?

 

  • Building site, house plans, materials

  • Carefully selected homeowner/partner family

  • Construction supervision, instruction, and training on the job-site (no building experience is necessary).

  • Assistance and support with church awareness and fund-raising efforts.

 

For more information and/or to schedule a meeting with us to discuss this opportunity further, please contact: Denise James, Executive Director at 541-779-1983 or email her at djames@roguevalleyhabitat.org
