Show the community what the collective power of women can accomplish!
Women Build Builds Their 17th Home!
Women Build empowers women from all walks of life to come together in a shared mission to help families in need of a decent and affordable place to call home. By bringing women together to help build Habitat homes, Women Build promotes solidarity and pride in our city, as we work alongside hundreds of women to build new affordable housing. Projects like Women Build set a positive example for women working cooperatively to better their community. To date, over 87% of Women Build sponsored homes have been purchased by single-mother households, meaning your support will truly make a difference in the lives of women and children.

2020 Partner Family
Teru was born in Ethiopia and spent 12 years in South Africa before immigrating to Canada in 2011.
She and her two oldest daughters, Maheder who is now 17 and Mekides, 12, were privately sponsored by her brother-in-law and are now proud permanent residents of Canada.
Maheder & Mekides are students at St. Mary’s Academy and Mary is in kindergarten at Our Lady of Victory School.
They currently live in a very small two bedroom basement apartment which is drafty and cold in the winter and much too small for this growing family.
Teru was overjoyed when she was given the good news that she had been approved as a partner family and looks forward to purchasing her own home where Maheder, Mekides and Mary can grow up, have sleepovers with their friends and invite family over for celebrations and dinners. We all deserve to live in a decent, affordable home; a Habitat home will help Teru and her children build strength, stability and independence.
I've really enjoyed my time volunteering, especially with Women Build. It's been a lot of fun and I've met a lot of people. Women Build has such a great atmosphere with lots of comradery.
