Support Redmond in Women Build

The life-changing benefits of affordable homeownership are immense: it can improve school performance, decrease crime, improve financial outcomes, and enhance the health and well-being of children and adults – just to name a few. But due to gendered systemic barriers, like the pay gap and its impact on credit access and uneven childcare responsibilities that limit time and financial resources, it is far more difficult for women to become homeowners.

Redmond 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 550 determined women, we will raise $475,000 to help build Habitat for Humanity homes that will be purchased by women with affordable mortgages! Then, we're hitting the Habitat construction sites 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.

Thanks for your support!

Thank you all for your support. We are all sore and tired from our build day yesterday but very proud of this amazing team for all the work accomplished and funds raised. We couldn't have done it without your support!


Thank you to all our donors! We have reached our goal, but we are going to keep fundraising for these amazing women. We invite you to read more about who we are building these homes for at the link
