Habitat for Humanity’s Women Builders have been picking up a hammer and helping change lives for more than 25 years. Are you ready to build with us? Join the Habitat Women Build movement and the ranks of 200+ women who will come together to raise walls, awareness and funds!
Why Women Build Matters:
- Achieving housing stability is far more difficult for women to realize than for men in similar situations. Here are just three reasons why:
- Men earn more on average than women, resulting in access to higher credit, better loans and better quality homes and neighborhoods.
- Unequal caregiving responsibilities limit a woman’s ability to dedicate the necessary time to obtaining and maintaining consistent employment and decent housing.
- Single women are denied mortgages at higher rates than single men despite the fact women are more reliable at paying back mortgages.
