Our Goal

empower women and fight for equitable opportunity

We believe equality for all women, a strong sense of self and confidence, and empowering women to achieve economic independence are vitally important issues.

  • Let’s celebrate the lives of extraordinary, ordinary women!
  • Let’s build one another up as we build up our community, home by home.

Women have been called “the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world”, and here at Habitat Tucson we know that when women come together, our ability to effect change in the community is incredible.

  • At Habitat Tucson, over 50% of families are single-mother households.
  • Women are 35% more likely to live in poverty than men, with single mothers facing the highest risk.
  • 60% of women occupy the nation’s lowest-paid jobs.

I want to join the Women Builder giving circle!

Join the women builder giving circle and make a difference in the lives of people in our community.

Read Zaida's Story

Like so many people this year, Zaida and her children were forced to move after a huge spike in rent. When she got the phone call accepting her into the Habitat Tucson homeownership program, she says,

“I was speechless. I couldn’t believe it. It felt really good that we got selected. It’s like a dream. It was the dream that we needed. We needed a house.”

Read Cynthia's Story

Cynthia Ruiz has a family of 6 who are her life. Cynthia was forced out of her home when her landlord gave her less than a month to find a new space before she had to leave. She moved into her home in June of 2022.

She says, “I’m trying to teach my kids that whatever it is that you put your heart on, as long as you don’t give up, you can get it.”
