I’m excited to share that I’ll be joining forces with the amazing women at Women Belong and Chicago Habitat for Humanity for a special Women Build project -
Building homes for women in Chicago.
I participated last year and it was amazing. Thank you so much for helping me raise money. Let me share a bit about what it went to and why I’m so grateful.
On the job site last year, we met a woman named Joyce. She is living in the house next to the one we were working on - a house that the Women Build team worked on the year prior. She warmly invited us dusty strangers and showed us around her new home with so much pride. There wasn’t a dry eye hearing her story and her gratitude - the safety and peace of mind in having a secure, affordable home. It’s been life-changing for her and her son! Home ownership is one of the most impactful tools for gaining financial security.
We’re building in the West Pullman neighborhood again. I’m excited to see how the neighborhood is progressing. Another thing I love about this project is that Habitat for Humanity is focused on building neighborhoods, not just houses. We’re setting folks up for success by building homes AND communities.

I'm strapping on a toolbelt along with 550 volunteers on Oct 20. Please help us with this project with a financial donation! If you can put $5 toward this project, it will help make a difference!
