About Women Build
The Women Build program was established to encourage the involvement of women in Habitat home constructions. Women make up 50 percent of Habitat’s volunteer force, yet often account for less than 15 percent of workers on the construction site. Fort Wayne Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program has resulted in homes built or rehabbed for six families. Nationwide, Women Build projects have furthered Habitat’s home-building mission by constructing more than 1,500 houses.
About Fort Wayne Habitat for Humanity
Fort Wayne Habitat for Humanity is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry using volunteer labor to build simple, affordable homes through partnerships with qualified Allen County families. Completed homes are sold to Habitat Homeowners with a $500 down payment and an interest-free mortgage. Because of volunteer involvement, the cost of a standard three-bedroom home is kept affordable at approximately $60,000, with monthly mortgage payments ranging from $375 to $400 including taxes and insurance. The revolving fund created by mortgage payments received allows Habitat to commit 100 percent of individual donations to additional housing opportunities in the community.
