MAY WOMEN BUILD is a group effort. Multiple teams, each made up of 10 women, join together to recruit friends, family, and funding to construct a new house.
Participants can lead a team or join a team. Teams select one or more days to participate in house construction during a six-week build schedule.
​House construction starts Thursday, May 14 and continues each Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day.
