Women strong is a select group of honorees who exemplify leadership through community involvement

Formed in 2016 in celebration of our 25th anniversary, this select network of women will create the foundation for Women Build 2017, Habitat's effort to build homes that are funded and constructed by women. Each of the women nominated to this group is committed to making Seminole County and Greater Apopka better place to live.

Through this network, 25 Seminole County women and 10 Apopka women will build and raise funds to help ensure that the homes we build will remain affordable for generations to come. 

Interested in joining or know someone who would make a great fit? Email us at WomenBuild@habitat-sa.org or call 407-696-5855 x 2201. You can also fill out the form below and someone from our team will respond!
