  2. Women Build 2022
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.

Interested in learning more about Women Build before creating your team or signing up to be a participant? Reach out to Kourtney Gallagher, kgallagher@gohabitat.org, with any questions. I'm also happy to come to speak to your group/organization regarding Women Build.
