Women Build is a Habitat for Humanity initiative that empowers women around the world to positively impact lives in their communities.

At Wichita Habitat for Humanity, we stand alongside our neighbors in Sedgwick County, not just building homes, but opportunities. Through construction projects, repairs, and community initiatives, we impact hundreds of lives each year, removing barriers to affordable housing.

We offer a hand up, particularly for women and families facing challenging circumstances, because we believe everyone deserves a safe and stable place to call home. This is not possible without the unwavering support of our community, the hands that help build, the hearts that give, and the voices that champion our cause.

Why Women Build?

By supporting Women Build, you not only contribute to the construction of essential affordable housing, but also play a key role in fostering resilient and thriving neighborhoods that will endure for generations. Your involvement in Women Build positions you as a leader addressing the crucial issues of affordable housing and equity building in the inclusive and sustainable growth in the City of Wichita.
