Women Build Albany

  • Habitat for Humanity Capital District Delaware Street Albany United States (map)

Women Build is an annual event inviting the community to support families building a decent place to call home. Women Build volunteers from all walks of life come together to build stronger, safer communities.

KID FRIENDLY! Because we’ll be doing landscaping tasks, volunteers under the age of 16 are invited! Bring the whole family for a day of giving back!

Here's how you can get involved:


This year, we’ll be sprucing up the block to give an official warm welcome to the newest homeowners at the Community Block Party that afternoon.

T-shirts will be provided and fun is guaranteed!

Safe parking is available along Elizabeth Street, and CDTA bus route 100 stops just three blocks away on Morton Avenue.

Check out our Facebook events for Women Build and the Community Block Party to invite your friends!

Frequently asked questions

Are only women allowed?

Everyone is welcome! It’s up to every single one of us to build a community—and a world—where everyone has a decent place to live.

Does Women Build work internationally?

Yes, even though ownership and property rights for women can be particularly challenging in some countries. Through Women Build, we can increase our advocacy efforts on these important issues while collecting valuable information which demonstrates the many benefits of female ownership. We are also partnering with several nongovernmental organizations to assist in giving these women a voice. Learn more about our international work.

How does Habitat empower women?

Our goal with Women Build is to empower women to help families build strength, stability and independence. We at Habitat have the ability to provide opportunities for hands-on learning, and given these tools, women can succeed in changing their communities.
