Women Build

The Women Build is a hands-on opportunity for women to build a home and break the cycle of poverty. It empowers women to take the lead in making affordable homeownership a reality for families in Polk County.

Women Build

The Hammers and Heels build begins in August 2018, and you can be a part of it by donating or volunteering with a group of your friends, family, or colleagues. You can learn new skills, work alongside other hard-working women, and help make a difference in the life of a hard-working family.

Beginning in 2005, women have worked together on 11 house builds in Des Moines. In 2018, they will build the 12th Women Build home in our community.
