Support Andrea Hornbeck in Women Build

Andrea Hornbeck
At different stages of my life, I have found myself drawn to participate in construction programs for communities/families. As a teenager in a third world country, I had my first experience fundraising, programing and building homes for low income families; as a college student, our team fundraised, designed and built a health clinic in rural Indonesia. It is only fitting that as a professional, I have found Habitat to rally behind. This year's team is eager to contribute to the cause and get our hands dirty and help 8 women-led families in the Chicago area - read more about your donations matter here my.habitatchicago.org/WomenBuild2022/Static/why-women-build-matters

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 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 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.
