has the power to build stronger communities
Every woman can make an impact
Women Build is a national initiative to engage women in the effort to provide safe and decent homes for families in need of affordable housing. By recruiting, educating and inspiring women to build, they can transform lives in their communities.
Over the years, Habitat Greensboro’s Women Build has partnered with six families to build strength and stability for children and their parents through local fundraising and volunteer efforts.

Meet our 2021 Women Build Future Homeowner
What are you most excited about for your new home? It is a question we often ask the children of our future homeowners here at Habitat Greensboro. The answers typically range from having their own room to having a yard where they can play. But for Tamieka’s 16-year-old son Christian, the answer was a bit different – he is most excited about how homeownership will impact the family’s finances and the money that his mom will save each month.
Tamieka has made goal setting and stability a priority and has shared this with her two children, who are learning from their mother’s example. In addition to pursuing homeownership, Tamieka is also completing a Sociology degree with a minor in Psychology at Guilford College while working full-time and monitoring remote learning for Christian and his 9-year-old brother Cameron.
Tamieka is extremely excited to provide the stability of a home for her children and to pursue her passion for gardening in her own yard. And Cameron? In typical 9-year-old fashion, he’s excited about having more space and playing in the backyard!
