Homeownership is one of the most dynamic tools a person can use to build a strong and stable future. However, it is a tool that far too many women are unjustly denied access. From the gender pay gap and its impact on credit profiles, to uneven child care responsibilities that consume time and financial resources, to higher rates of mortgage denials despite superior payment performance, the barriers keeping women from homeownership are massive.
I am Co-Captain for the Perkins and Will Team of (12) amazing, generous and enthusiastic women. We will be grabbing our hammers, strapping on tool belts, 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.
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. The Perkins and Will Team is trying to collectively raise $7,500 to match our company's donation, so in total we can donate $15,000 to Habitat for Humanity Chicago.
We appreciate any support you can give - big, small, or somewhere in between.
