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 women to become homeowners.
We have decided, as a family, to actively do something about this. With strong ties and a rich background in the city of Chicago, the Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of and building opportunity for our fellow neighbors in the city we love.
Inspired and motivated by our first Women Build experience in 2019, this October we’re once again linking arms, picking up our power tools, and joining in Habitat for Humanity Chicago's Women Build to knock these barriers down. Alongside 450 determined women, we will raise $300,000 to help build Habitat for Humanity homes that will be purchased by women with affordable mortgages! Then, we're hitting the Habitat construction sites in West Pullman to help build these 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.
Thanks for your support,
Andrew Family Foundation
