My Women Build Fundraising Page

Jennifer Wilson

I'm so excited to participate in Women Build and help build a home for a family in need! Please help me support Habitat for Humanity of Anderson County by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar I raise will advance Habitat for Humanity of Anderson County's great cause - to build strength, stability and self-reliance through decent, affordable housing! Additionally, you can ask me how you can get involved too.
Together, we can make a difference!

Why a Women's Build???

WOMEN AND HOUSING

Women and children make up the majority of people populating Habitat neighborhoods, as they are the most likely to be affected by poor living conditions. They face challenges that make it more difficult to access this basic need.

Higher rates of poverty for female heads of household – Three out of four single-parent families are headed by a female. More than 30 percent of female-headed households with children are below the poverty level.

Housing discrimination – Minorities, women and low-income borrowers receive a disproportionate amount of high-cost loans. Women on average pay more for mortgages than men, experience higher rates of subprime lending than men and are more likely to be denied a mortgage than men.

The wage gap – On average, women still earn 80 percent of what the average male earns.
