The Women Build program – an all-female volunteer workforce – raises funds for and constructs Habitat houses in partnership with families in need of safe, affordable housing. Women empower Women. Donate now to jump-start our fundraising for House #13!

The Alachua Women Build program was founded in the mid-1990s and has taught women of all ages and backgrounds teamwork and building skills. We have built 11 affordable houses in the county, are about to start construction of House #12, and are already fundraising for #13.

Cheryl Kays began building with Women Build in 2010, while we were constructing House #5 in High Springs. She’s continued to be an active builder, became a member of the WB steering committee, and for several years, was chair of Women Build. Always enthusiastic and up to a challenge, Cheryl has agreed to go Over the Edge for Women Build.

Two more Women Builders have joined Cheryl as Edgers. Heidi Harris is a long-time volunteer with Alachua Women Build and manages its Facebook page. Danielle Osborne is new to Alachua Women Build and was inspired to join this fundraising effort because of her experience of being homeless as a child. She wants everyone to have an opportunity to live in an affordable home.

Please support these three women, Women Build, and affordable housing in our community by donating now. And come out to Celebration Point on November 30 to cheer.

All are welcome

We envision a world where everyone has a decent place to live and we work towards that vision by bringing people together to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter. To accomplish these goals, we invite people of all backgrounds, races, genders, religions, political views - or any of the other distinctions that too often divide us - to build together in partnership with local families in need of affordable housing. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Alachua Habitat has built more than 135 homes in the local community. Habitat houses are sold to homeowner families at no profit and financed with affordable loans.

Working together, side-by-side, we build solid houses, new relationships, and stronger communities.


Brief history

Founded in 1986, Alachua Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization with our own 501(c)3 designation. We are the local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. Although we work in partnership with Habitat for Humanity International, Alachua Habitat for Humanity is an independent organization led by a local board of directors to coordinate all aspects of our work, including fundraising and program oversight.
