What is Women Build?
DuPage Habitat for Humanity’s 2016 Fall Women Build is an opportunity for women to come together and build homes, communities and hope
for families in need! The mission of Women Build is simple - to recruit, educate and nurture women to build and advocate for simple,
decent and affordable housing in their communities. Volunteers of every skill level are welcome. We will teach, support and train all
participants on the build site!
Where is it?
The event will take place at our build site in Bensenville, 177 S. Route 83, Bensenville, IL 60106. A map of the site can be found by clicking
Community Builders will begin at 9 AM and complete their projects around 3:30 PM on September 24 and October 1. Corporate Builders will start their
workday at 8:00 am and end around 3:30 pm on September 26-30. All tools, safety gear and training will be provided on site. Get excited to give
back with a group of energetic women!

According to the US Census, more than 40% of women who head families are now living in poverty. Habitat breaks the cycle of poverty by creating direct access to
affordable homes. For 20 years, DuPage Habitat for Humanity has been serving families looking for a “hand up” to make the dream of homeownership a reality.
