From October 1st – January 8th, please join us and help Habitat for Humanity Anchorage build houses, build hope and change lives.


Our goal is to raise $100,000 in 100 days 

About the campaign

Habitat for Humanity Anchorage is thrilled to introduce the 1000 Women Strong campaign, driven by a dynamic and socially responsible group of women. Our goal: Ensuring that decent housing is accessible for hard-working families. This is a 100-day, peer-to-peer campaign where we partner with donors, faith organizations, and businesses in our community to fundraise for future Habitat for Humanity homebuilds in Anchorage.


Housing needs in Anchorage are too great for one single organization to solve. Habitat for Humanity seeks to provide a hand up -- not a hand out -- and open the door to safe, decent, affordable homeownership for families in our community. The key to being part of the solution? Donors and volunteers like you.

This campaign is not exclusive; we want everyone to join as we build up the the strength, values, and passion of women in this community and achieve our goals. Over the next 100 days, we invite women, female-owned/lead businesses, groups of friends, families, co-workers, and those who love and support the women in their lives to join together and support the important work Habitat for Humanity Anchorage is preparing to achieve in the coming years.

Featured story: "This is my house"

If I hadn't found Habitat, we would still be in that one-bedroom apartment. And it wasn't the best of conditions. There was an old electric stove, and depending on what you were doing, you'd get shocked. The dryer was always going out, and we had to hang clothes all over the house. It seemed really quiet when we were looking for a place, but then over time, there was a lot of violence. There was actually a homicide in our building. It's those things that put a lot of stress on people, and we were definitely feeling that.

I didn't think I was going to qualify. But they considered that a need: four people in one bedroom, having the issues that we were having. I had no idea that I was capable of doing a lot of the things that we ended up doing. I loved it. For almost a year, I was working seven days a week, plus doing sweat equity. Depending on my shifts, I would work a morning shift, then go to the Habitat ReStore and work an evening shift there. Monday through Friday, I took Habitat classes in the evening, and I put in my construction hours on the weekends, every Saturday if possible. While constructing the house, I got to know my neighbors. We built each other's homes, and you can't get much closer than that.

The biggest difference overall is that general sense of security. Just knowing that it's ours, and we make all the decisions - it's been really comforting for our family. I think the kids knowing that they won't have to move is very comforting. We've made a lot of moves over the years - 13, in fact.

I know my son really appreciates having his room. Having his place, his own room - he really likes it a lot. He's trying to convince me to turn the basement into a room, which I don't know if I'm keen on yet. But it's definitely a possibility. Just knowing that we have possibilities, it's really awesome.

You know, I think I was more scared of buying a car than buying a house. And the only reason for that was Habitat forHumanity. I feel really comforted knowing that, if anything were to happen, Habitat would work with me. So I didn't feel scared, just willing.

When I went to sign all of the official paperwork, and they hand you the real keys and the title and everything, that;s when I was like, This is happening. This is now my house, and these are my keys." We moved in right away, that next weekend, even with boxes all over the place it felt like, "This is my house."   ~ Lyndsay, Habitat homeowner

how we

got started

It all started in 2008 when a small group of women had a similar passion for humanity and wanted to provide families a safe place to call home. The 100 Women House was born.
