Be a part of Women Build Weekend!

Join Habitat for Humanity of Tompkins and Cortland Counties for our 6th annual Women Build Weekend event, two spectacular days filled with construction, training, learning, community building and fun! This year, we’re bringing the work party back to Ithaca with a goal to build the wall panels for our next house, construct yet another fantastic playhouse, and offer hands-on construction training every step of the way.

Women Build Weekend is an opportunity to empower yourself, develop new friendships with other women in our community, and do some lasting good for a deserving local families.  All the while, you’ll be learning new skills and helping spread the word that simple, decent, affordable housing is a necessity that we can’t overlook.  Registration is just $20 and we hope you’ll also create a fundraising page and help us reach our $20,000 overall fundraising goal. 


Don’t wait!  Register now and encourage your mother, sister, friend, or co-workers to do the same.  With sawdust on your hands and satisfaction in your heart, Habitat can make this a Mother’s Day weekend that you won’t soon forget.

About the Organization

Habitat for Humanity of Tompkins and Cortland Counties

Habitat for Humanity of Tompkins and Cortland Counties (TCHFH) builds decent housing in partnership with families in need of affordable housing.
We are part of Habitat for Humanity International's global, nonprofit housing movement operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. TCHFH is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.
Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.
