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 hurdles keeping women from homeownership are high.
This October, I'm strapping on my tool belt with Team Lady Boss lead by fellow designer Sarah Montgomery and joining Habitat Chicago's Women Build alongside 450 determined 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 and an opportunity for a better future.
I firmly believe change happens one person at a time. 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 greatly appreciate any support you can give.
Thanks very much,
