Marist Women Build

Be a Builder

Since 2003, the women of Marist have been building homes for single mothers and their families.  Many of our builders have expressed that Marist Women Build is the most rewarding project that they have participated in at Marist. Builders return year after year, answering the call to serve.

Please join us as we build our 17th Marist Women Build home in 2017. Volunteers are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, so be sure to sign up early! 

How Do I Sign Up to Build?

Each adult builder (who does not fall into an exempt category) is asked to raise or contribute $200 to cover building costs. This is a one-time donation that will allow one person to build on one or more days.

Exempt Builders
Exempt builders include:
  • Marist faculty or staff members
  • Sponsors or someone building under a sponsorship
  • Marist students (Parents please sign up your student.)
Exempt builders sign up to build by going directly to
