Support Barrie Dekker in Women Build

Barrie Dekker
As someone who has BEEN THERE, I feel so good about this opportunity to give back! It's freaking scary not knowing where you'll live and if you can sustain it. How lucky I've been with the help of friends, family. and now my new (AMAZING) husband! Many aren't as blessed...

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 childcare 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 550 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 by helping me reach my fundraising goal so we can change the lives of these women and their kiddos forever and prove that there's nothing a group of committed peeps can't do. 
I appreciate any support you can give - big, small, or somewhere in between. Prayers and meditations work as well!!!
With so much love and gratitude!
XOXO Barrie
