A National program of Habitat for Humanity sponsored by Lowe’s, Women Build Week, held May 5-13, brings women together from all walks of life to place a spotlight on the homeownership challenges they face, and make a profound difference in Walton County.

This year brings in more ways for women to come together in the spirit of empowerment and impact.

In addition to Women Build days, volunteers can participate in a women’s empowerment luncheon, Hard Hats & High Heels. Also new to Women Build Week is Slay + Rosé: Buti Yoga, a healthy way to spend time with girlfriends and sweat with intention.


Volunteers at Women Builds will meet the family they are helping, spend time with friends and colleagues, and learn construction skills that are useful in their own homes. This will be exciting work and Habitat Walton County welcomes all beginners and skill levels. Volunteers may work several shifts or just one, and will be trained on the job site.

2017 Power Woman of the Year Award

The 2017 Power Woman of the Year recognition will be awarded to a woman who sets a positive example through her actions and words, inspires others to embrace one another’s strengths, and cheers other women on. This woman embodies empowerment, perseverance and leadership through her trailblazing and achievements – simultaneously lifting other women up along the way. Nominations will be accepted until Friday, April 28.
