On October 11, Studio Gang will participate in Habitat for Humanity Chicago’s 2019 WOMEN BUILD to help a woman-led family build strength, stability, and independence through affordable housing.
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.
By raising the funds needed to construct a home, and coming together to physically build it, our team of Women Builders are helping unlock the possibilities of homeownership for their fellow women. When a woman purchases a home with Habitat for Humanity Chicago, she doesn't just build a house. She builds a better future for herself and her family.
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.
