Support Hardhat's Tale (HMR Designs 4) in Women Build

Hardhat's Tale (HMR Designs 4)

The life-changing benefits of affordable homeownership are immense: it improves school performance, decreases crime, improves financial outcomes, and enhances the health and well-being of children and adults – just to name a few. But due to gendered barriers like the pay gap and its impact on credit access, and uneven child care responsibilities that limit time and financial resources, it is far more difficult for a woman to own a home than a similarly situated man.

Hardhat's Tale (HMR Designs 4) is doing something about this. We’re linking arms, picking up our power tools, and joining in Habitat for Humanity Chicago's Women Build to knock these barriers down. Alongside 400 determined women, we will raise $275,000 to help build affordable homes that will be owned by women! Then, we're hitting the Habitat build site in October to help construct the homes. 

Help us reach our goal so we can change the lives of these women forever and prove that there is nothing a committed group of women can’t achieve when they come together. Every donation - big, small, or somewhere in between - helps to build a strong, stable, and equal future.
