Did you know that decent, stable, and affordable housing is crucial for a family's overall health and well-being? Families living in decent housing experience fewer health issues and are less likely to require emergency care. Children living in quality and affordable housing are significantly more likely to graduate from high school and college. Families living in affordable homes have double the discretionary income to pay down debt or invest in a savings account.
With one in ten Chicagoans currently living in inadequate housing, the time to act is now! I'm making a difference by helping to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity Chicago, a nonprofit committed to building a city where every resident lives in a healthy home in a stable community.
You can make a difference, too. By contributing to my goal of $100, you will ensure that more families have the opportunity to thrive. I appreciate any support you can give - big, small, or somewhere in between!
