Twelve TTN members will join a community of Chicago women volunteering together to celebrate our strengths, have a blast and build permanent and affordable homes for dynamic, woman-led families. Women Builders create a reality where one less woman will be denied the opportunity of homeownership.
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.
