Women can make and do make a difference. You can make a difference. Help us reach our fundraising goal so we can change the lives of women forever and prove that there's nothing a group of committed women can't do.
Since Covid-19 has brought a new dimension to what it means to be denied home ownership and live with housing insecurity. Home is not only a sanctuary but has become a place of work and school.
Homeownership is also 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.
Please join us in making a difference through a day of service and contribution to Habitat for Humanity.
This October, I'm grabbing my hardhat, hammer, strapping on my tool belt, 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.
Change happens one person at a time. I appreciate any financial support you can give - big, small, or somewhere in between. And we have a few spots open for women who are passionate about empowering women. No experience necessary. Please contact me if you might like to join our team--swinging a hammer and playing with power tools (it's more fun than you think!).
Join us to make a direct and immediate impact for Chicago families.
