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.
The Drywall Divas are here to do something about it! We're a bunch of Chicago friends who are eager to get together and get to work. This October we'll be picking up our power tools, and joining in Habitat for Humanity Chicago's Women Build to help women achieve the goal of homeownership. Alongside 500 determined women, we will raise $375,000 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 the homes.
We hope you'll help us reach our goal -- and provide moral support along the way! -- so we can help these women unlock the benefits that homeownership provides 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 and we hope you'll contribute to our team and to the Women Build cause!
Thank you for your support, The Drywall Divas
The Drywall Divas are ready to go! We're a bunch of Chicago friends eager to get to work and we hope you'll help us reach our goals!
