The life-changing benefits of affordable homeownership are immense: it improves school performance, decreases crime, improves financial outcomes, and enhances the health and well-being for children and adults – among many others.
But due to gendered barriers like the pay gap and its impact on credit access, uneven child care responsibilities that limit time and financial resources, and higher mortgage rates and denials, it is far more difficult for a woman to own a home than a similarly situated man.
10/12 Friday - Team Brick House is doing something about this. 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 300 determined women, we will completely fund and begin building the home of a low-income, woman-led family and celebrate all of the women purchasing affordable homes with Habitat for Humanity Chicago.
Help us reach our goal so we can change the lives of these women forever 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.
