Why Women Build Matters
Achieving housing stability is far more difficult for women to realize than for men in similar situations. Here are just three reasons why:
Men earn more on average than women, resulting in access to higher credit, better loans and better-quality homes and neighborhoods.
Unequal caregiving responsibilities limit a woman’s ability to dedicate the necessary time to obtaining and maintaining consistent employment and decent housing.
Single women are denied mortgages at higher rates than single men despite the fact women are more reliable at paying back mortgages.
I'm grabbing my hammer, strapping on my tool belt, and joining Habitat Chicago's Women Build alongside 400 other powerhouse women to knock these barriers down. Together, we will help our fellow women become homeowners with Habitat Chicago, a nonprofit committed to building a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
You can make a difference. Please help me reach my fundraising goal so we can change the lives of these women forever and prove that there's nothing a group of committed women can't do. I appreciate any support you can give - big, small, or somewhere in between.
