Support Jo-Ann Finkelstein in Women Build

Jo-Ann Finkelstein

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.

As a Clinical Psychologist in a city rife with inequity, I believe everyone should have the opportunity to reach their potential.

This October, I'm grabbing my hammer, strapping on my mask, and joining Habitat Chicago's Women Build alongside 450 other masked and 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. 

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.

Change happens one person at a time. I appreciate any support you can give - big, small, or somewhere in between.
