Support Beth Ralston in Women Build

Beth Ralston

Research is constantly emerging on the long-term benefits of affordable home-ownership (financial, health, social, etc). However, home-ownership is a tool that is frequently denied to women, particularly women of color. From the gender pay gap and its impact on credit profiles, to uneven child care responsibilities that consume time and financial resources, to higher rates of mortgage denials despite superior payment performance, the barriers keeping women from home-ownership are massive.

But I'm doing something about it. Together with my CBRE colleague, Katie Anderson, I'm leading a team of amazing women in the Construction/Design/Real Estate Industry to fund raise and volunteer our time. I am so excited to work with our diverse team of women who spend their days designing, engineering, managing, building and furnishing construction projects. We will join alongside 300 powerhouse women to knock these barriers down with Habitat Chicago's Women Build.

Our team with Habitat Chicago’s Women build will completely fund and begin work on physically building the home of a woman-led family AND celebrate all of the women purchasing affordable homes with Habitat for Humanity Chicago.

You can make a difference. Help me and my team meet and exceed our goals so we can change the lives of these women forever and exemplify that there's no limit to what we as women can accomplish. I appreciate any support you can give - big, small, or somewhere in between.

Thanks!
Beth
