Marist Women Build

Who We Are

In 2001, the women of Marist School teamed up with Atlanta Habitat for Humanity to form the first high school all women build in the country.

Our mission is to make home ownership a reality for families in need. We advance our mission by educating women about Habitat for Humanity and by teaching and supporting women volunteers who build with us. All Marist Women Build homes have been built for families with a single mother as head of the household which supports the MWB vision of homes built by women for women.

The following is needed to successfully build a Habitat for Humanity home:
  • $80,000 in funds raised from Sponsors and Builders
  • 320 Volunteer Builders
  • 8 seven-hour build days

House 21 in 2021!

Come build with us as we continue our mission of changing lives one home at a time and building affordable homes for women by women.

No one can predict what spring 2021 will bring. What we do know is this… if we raise $80,000 through the generosity of our builders and sponsors, Atlanta Habitat for Humanity can build a home for a single mother to fulfill our mission again in 2021. We have varying levels of sponsorships.

100% of all donations go directly toward the cost of building the home. To learn more visit our Be a Sponsor page.

2020 Virtual Build

In September 2020 Micah Beverly became a first-time homeowner with Atlanta Habitat for Humanity (AHFH). This could not have happened without the financial and volunteer support from Marist Women Build.

Like so many organizations in 2020, AHFH had to modify their business operations due to Covid-19, and just a few days before construction began, our build was put on hold. We are grateful for the builders and sponsors who donated $80,000 toward MWB house #20. Although our 300+ volunteers were not able to build, our funds provided the needed financial support to complete the home. What normally would have taken 8 days of building, a dedicated team of 4 AHFH skilled supervisors built the home in 90 days. 
 
2020 was a build like no other…a VIRTUAL build! The end result was another home built, another extremely happy family, and another Marist Women Build mission accomplished.
