We want to embolden women around the country, by helping them to create a decent place to live.”
In partnership with Habitat LA, Chico’s FAS is committed to the well-being, health and empowerment of women and will demonstrate their support at Saturday’s Power Women, Power Tools build.

The stability and security of homeownership will allow families to pursue careers, further their education and watch their children thrive.
