What is Women Build?

Women Build is a unique partnership of female community leaders, along with companies focused on women as executives and mentors, coming together to sponsor, build, and dedicate a house for a female homeowner. Women Build is focused on the power of networking to help women achieve their goals, including making homeownership a reality for a Habitat partner family each year.


Under the brand, “Couture Construction,” Women Build will hold its fifth annual networking fundraising event at Dillard’s inviting women to “Build Your Wardrobe, Build Your Network, Build a Home,” with Dillard’s contributing a portion of the proceeds to Women Build. We are thrilled to announce that this year's Couture Construction, set to take place on March 29, from 5:30-9 p.m., will be the VIP party for the new Dillard's, The Mall at Green Hills, prior to its Grand Opening Celebration.


Women Build is a great way to meet new people and have fun while supporting women like Ronza, our 2017 future Habitat homeowner, who is working hard to better her life. For more information about how you get involved in Women Build or Couture Construction, contact Lauren Lane Payne at llane@habitatnashville.org.



2017 Future Women Build Habitat homeowner, Ronza

A graduate of the Magdalene House program who worked at Thistle Farms, Ronza went back to school to become a licensed drug and alcohol counselor and now works at Meharry Medical College as a recovery counselor.  Owning a home is one of her biggest dreams. “Where I currently live, there is a lot of drug trafficking and I know the dangers and want to distance myself from that harmful lifestyle. I want a place where I can host friends and family, especially during the holidays. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for giving me my biggest dream. Thank you for blessing and giving me a once and lifetime opportunity to do the one thing I have always wanted. I promise I will not let this opportunity be squandered. God bless you all,” she said. Ronza's build starts April 29!




Women Build 2016 kicked off April 9, 2016, building homes for two sisters, Sierra and Sakiah.
