Throughout the year, Habitat Charlotte Region hosts several special construction projects or ongoing builds to celebrate annual traditions or observe holidays. As these special builds approach, details on how to get involved will be displayed here.
What started as a casual conversation among a small group of Charlotte-area women in 1991 has grown into an international movement of women empowering women through affordable housing. To date, nearly 2,700 homes have been constructed by women crews in the U.S. and 30 foreign countries – and it started right here in Charlotte.
Every year, Habitat Charlotte Region invites women from across the community to consider being a part of this meaningful build. Fundraising initiatives for Women Build will take place throughout the summer and early fall. Though recent restrictions with COVID have caused volunteer opportunities to be diminished for the 2020 Women Build house, we remain committed to the tradition and the movement of women empowering women. There is still a tremendous need for affordable housing among women in our community and we can still use your help! Here are the ways you can get involved in this year’s Women Build:

Habitat Charlotte Region established the Veterans Build to honor those who served in the U.S. Armed Forces and also to encourage veteran involvement in the construction and repairs of Habitat homes.
Veterans Build not only provides homeownership for a deserving veteran, it provides an opportunity for military-trained men and women to use their skills in the community. These veterans have served our country faithfully; it is Habitat Charlotte Region’s privilege to serve them.
Habitat Charlotte Region will complete its eighth Veterans Build in 2021! Check back for more details on how you can be involved!
“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Habitat Charlotte is delighted to provide opportunities for individuals and groups to volunteer on a construction project or in one of the Charlotte ReStores each MLK Day. By working to build decent, affordable housing and helping others realize their dream of homeownership, you can be part of Dr. King’s enduring legacy.
