65% of Habitat families are women led households!
Women Build brings together women from all walks of life to address the housing crisis faced by women and children throughout the Greater Fort Worth Area. Having a safe and decent place to live can bring stability and provide a foundation from which families can reach their full potential.
Through our Build-A-Home program, Habitat families work with donors, volunteers, and community partners to build their home and strengthen their neighborhoods.
Share Your Own #PassTheHammer Video
- Grab a hammer, your smartphone, and a friend (or a tripod)
- Film yourself sharing why Women Build is important to you*
- Share your video to social media with the Copy & Paste Text
*Examples of what you can say are below. At the start of your video bring your hammer in from your RIGHT (as if someone off camera has handed it to you) and then at the end of your video say, “I’m now passing the hammer to you!”, and pass the hammer off screen to your LEFT. Do NOT have someone toss you a hammer – that could end badly!

Examples of what you can say for your video…
You can share whatever you love most about Women Build or use one of the examples below as a starting point. Think about the single moms you know or maybe you are a single mom yourself. Briefly share a personal reason why Women Build is important to you.
“My mom was a single mom who worked so hard to create a better life for me and my brother. I support Women Build because Habitat partners with single moms and helps them build better futures for themselves and their children. I’m now passing the hammer to you!”
“I’m a single mom and I know how hard it can be to support a family on one income. I support Women Build because Habitat is helping local single moms build financial stability through affordable homeownership. I’m now passing the hammer to you!”
“Being a single mom is hard! That’s why I support Women Build. More than half the families they partner with are led by single moms doing everything they can to build a better future for their kids. It is important work and I’m proud to be a part of it! I’m now passing the hammer to you!”
“I support Women Build because Habitat offers a hand up, not a handout. The single moms they partner with help build their own homes and pay an affordable mortgage. With the support of the community, they are able to build a better future for themselves and their children. I’m now passing the hammer to you!”
“I support Women Build because I love volunteering with Habitat and working alongside strong moms building their own homes. Habitat brings women together to learn new skills and empower each other. It is an awesome organization. I’m now passing the hammer to you!”
“I support Women Build because more than half the families Habitat partners with are women-led households. Habitat is partnering with these Strong Moms to build better futures for themselves and their children. I’m now passing the hammer to you!”
