Why we  build on ? The past year has brought unique challenges for each of us, but the pandemic has been a stark reminder that the housing crisis is far from over. This year’s event, Women Build On, is a celebration of resilience in our community, as well as a recognition of the fact that our work is not complete!  The Women we build with have made a conscious effort to make a difference and back up our donations by putting in THE WORK as well with a day of building.


Several years ago - a group of women who work in San Diego’s construction industry got together and were searching for a charitable cause that they could participate in. Fast forward... several years later, with all of us a little older...led by a fearless woman who can't be more than 5' 4" tall, our ensemble returns to take up the cause - building homes with Habitat for Humanity.

By day, we do our work behind the scenes so homes can be built and sold. We finance homes, work for builders, plan and design homes, market and sell homes throughout San Diego County. We found the amazing rewards in doing something that makes a difference to solve some of the ills in our housing industry's crisis of affordability in San Diego. The positive results have far exceeded our wildest expectations.

So after too long away from the cause - we start again - May 7th 2021 -

Habitat for humanity and Women's Build Day

San Diego's own MRoland's Rockstars!

Maggie Roland - the original Rockstar!

Empowered women taking action, advocating for simple, decent, and affordable housing in San Diego County. We aren't afraid to get a little dirty - swing a 2 lb. framing hammer all day or go through a box of band aids to cover the blisters, put on more sunscreen, and then go back out and keep "swinging." For those who have "aged out" of the swinging hammer days - there is always plenty to do; grout the kitchen floor, paint playhouses, put in plumbing fixtures or cheer us on in the heat or rain.  

Mixed in with the grit and grime we laugh a lot. And within this dynamic environment of friends, family and co-workers all pulling together, we find that the work to help others - especially those who are willing to work right alongside of us – is a boundless gift that keeps on giving.

We could tell you a thousand stories - ones of the "everyday people" that we have met - working hard to achieve that "American dream" of home ownership that provides a safe and happy place for their children. They just need a little help - and that is where we arrive at the 2021 Women's Build day for Habitat for Humanity...

We just need a little help from a lot of people... Or a lot of help from a few... We need you! From the comfort of your couch, with an adult beverage, you can lend a helping hand by sending a donation and cheer us on...The MRoland Rockstars!

Your contribution - no matter how small or large - will directly benefit

those in need of a home. We'll do the heavy lifting. We just ask that you help lift us up with whatever financial donation you can afford- so we can buy more supplies, build more homes, house more people.

And if you can't help - don't despair - because you still can be a vital part of our success... forward our story along to your family and friends, maybe they can help. It truly takes a village to build a better village and we need your help.

You are the ones that can make the difference!
