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 to. 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 grabbing my 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.
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.
Looking forward to being more involved next year! Go team Amy Bilton!!

I am huge supporter of Habit for Humanity. I was fortunate to hear President Carter talk about his long-time participation in Habit for Humanity when I attended a few years ago his Sunday School classes he taught in Plains, Georgia. Even though he was in early 90s he was still very active with Habit for Humanity. That was a huge inspiration for me. Keep up the good work!
Keep up the GREAT work!
