Renew Indianapolis recently joined Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity to help promote Women Build, a proactive way for women to help serve other women in their community. This initiative fosters stronger, safer communities and shines a spotlight on how amazing women are at mobilizing, fundraising, organizing, and building homes.
The thing we love most about Women Build is that the initiative prioritizes first-time homebuyers who are women. Helping women get into the new homes that have been built for them by women volunteers is a rewarding feeling—and we were super grateful to help out with this event.
Partnering With Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity
Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity has been hosting its Women Build events since 1991, with opportunities available all across the U.S. for any woman who wants to learn how to build and construct a home.
What’s special about our collaboration with Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity is that we were able to build on vacant lots in neighborhoods where there is no affordable housing or a very low concentration of affordable housing. Together, we’ve accomplished so much, and the building aspect of these projects has become such a fun learning process.
Giving Back to Our Communities
We think it’s imperative to give back to our communities, and we’re honored to be a part of such a great cause that places women at the forefront. These families get to move into areas where they are side-by-side with other market-rate housing, meaning that this is wealth-building for these families moving into these affordable homes.
We’re here to empower women to be builders, leaders, friends, teammates, and more. We especially want to give women the support they need to feel confident and secure taking the leap into homeownership. Want to get involved? Here’s how:
