Marist Women Build

First-Time Builders

Marist Women Build are women on a mission. Many of our builders say Marist Women Build is the most rewarding volunteer project they have ever done. We have many returning, multi-year volunteers.

First Fifty First-Timers

50 Free First-Timers is a program to encourage first-time builders. We are so convinced our first-time builders will return in subsequent build years, we are offering the first 50 women who volunteer for the first time a waiver of their $200 builder fee.

If you are a first-time builder but would like to donate toward the cost of building the home, you are welcome to donate in the amount of your choice.
