Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build empowers women to take the hammer and take the lead to help lower-income families in their own community build and purchase safe, affordable housing.
This year we will be partnering with the Searria Peoples and her four children to build their new home in Columbia, TN. Our 2021 Women Build will be smaller this year with limited volunteer opportunities in light of the pandemic, but what won't change will be the need to raise $70,000 to pay for the home's "bricks and sticks" through our Hammers & High Heels fundraiser!
Though we will all miss celebrating together in-person this year, we hope you will “attend” virtually with us to support Searria's future home from the comfort of your home – whether you are in your PJs or stilettos!
Tickets now on sale for a special virtual program and songwriters’ night, “A Night of Songs & Stories,” with Brennen Leigh, Noel McKay, Tammy Rogers King of the Steeldrivers, and special guest, Jeff King. (Tickets vary - $20 to $85)

Searria Peoples, born and raised in Franklin, walked across the stage at her high school graduation with newborn twins in tow. Raised by a single mother, she adopted hard work and perseverance as tools to overcome life’s challenges.
Searria has worked as a customer service senior representative at Evicore Health Care for the past three years and loves spending her free time with her children when not in the office. She is most looking forward to her new home’s yard since it has always been a dream of hers to have a vegetable garden. The mother of four thanks HFHWM staff and all her funding sponsors for giving her this opportunity. “Your kind hearts and passion for what you do will always be remembered. Without you, owning a home would be a greater challenge for my family.” Learn more about the Peoples family.
