to empower women and fight for equitable opportunity
We believe equality for all women, a strong sense of self and confidence, and empowering women to achieve economic independence are vitally important issues.
Let’s celebrate the lives of extraordinary, ordinary women!
Let’s build one another up as we build up our community, home by home.
Women have been called “the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world,” and here at Habitat Tucson we know that when women come together, our ability to effect change in the community is incredible.
- At Habitat Tucson, over 50% of families are single-mother households.
- Women are 35% more likely to live in poverty than men, with single mothers facing the highest risk.
- 60% of women occupy the nation’s lowest-paid jobs.
