Women creating real change for women in our community

On Saturday, April 29, 2017, dozens of women from across the construction trade and design industries will manage, facilitate, and implement four projects in San Francisco that directly impact the health and safety of women in their homes and community spaces. Learn more about how to contribute to this unique initiative.

02Days 02Hours 52Minutes 55Seconds

More than 1 in 7 women and more than 1 in 5 children live in poverty. Women across the country are working hard to make ends meet, often in unsafe homes and communities.

  • More than half of those children live in families headed by women

Rebuilding Together San Francisco has always been committed to improving lives for women and families

  • In 2016, 54% of the home repairs completed by Rebuilding Together San Francisco were in women’s homes
  • Women served are between 42 and 97 years old and have lived in their homes between 11 and 61 years

Together, we can increase the health and safety of women’s homes and empower women to become change makers in their communities.

Project I | Partner with a women’s shelter that is a safe haven for homeless, prostituted women escaping the violence, brutality,and trauma of life on the street. This shelter has served women for nearly 20 years, to help individuals overcome obstacles, equip them with new skills, and empower them to be their own advocates.

Project II | Assist a grandmother who wants to remain in her home after over 40 years of ownership. The home, beyond the usual wear and tear, is in need of significant carpentry, painting, and plumbing work, as well as reorganizing the space to be more conducive to a safe and healthy living environment.

Project III | Help a homeowner who grew up in this home prepare for new housemates as she works to keep the home in her family’s name.  While the home is in relatively good shape, the cost of maintaining the home exceeds her fixed income.  To make ends meet, she wants to bring in housemates to help with expenses.  To help with the usual wear and tear needs of the home, the project will include basic home repair, cleaning, and clutter clearing to improve the home’s health and safety standards. 

Project IV | Help redesign an after school program space celebrating its 20th year of mentoring 80 K-12 youth. The library space will take on a new life, as the redesign encourages greater usage, reading space, and small group work for students of all ages.
