Are you a woman interested in volunteering to help families build simple, decent, affordable homes? Would you enjoy learning construction and home repair skills in a fun, safe, team, learning environment? Then Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley’s All Women's Crew is for you!
Join the dedicated women who come together to volunteer, raise funds, provide support and training, and build friendship in Alameda and Contra Costa county. By joining the Women’s Crew, you can contribute to affordable housing within a supportive community. Established in 1994, the Women's Crew provides a meaningful and rewarding experience for women who volunteer and financially support Habitat's mission. As they assist low-income families build their homes, the Women's Crew also acquire skills they can use to repair and maintain their own homes.
The Women's Crew has slots reserved on the 2nd Saturday of each month at one of the current construction sites in both Alameda and Contra Costa counties. Workdays for rehab projects vary and are posted on the website. Habitat builds Tuesdays through Saturdays and any level of skill is welcome. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old.
