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.
LJC/Clayco isn't okay with this and we're doing something about it. This October, we’re linking arms, picking up our power tools, and joining in Habitat for Humanity Chicago's Women Build to knock these barriers down. 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.
Help us reach our goal 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 to build a strong, stable, and equal future.
Already smashed the goal! Now it's time to put all those years of watching This Old House and Fixer Upper to use!
