About Habitat for Humanity Chicago

We all love this city we call home, but with 4 in 10 people living in declining conditions, too many Chicagoans are getting left behind. By partnering with committed residents and trusted organizations, Habitat Chicago helps families and communities build stronger futures through housing, beautification, and development projects.
