Due to the Illinois COVID-19 social distancing orders, we are unable to host our annual Benefit Breakfast. Instead, settle in with your household, prepare your favorite lunchtime meal, and join in the Rally for Resiliency: A Virtual Gathering Benefiting Habitat Chicago!


Alongside hundreds of caring citizens, from the safety of home, you'll hear from industry experts and Habitat Chicago homeowners on the inextricable link between health and housing conditions. During this virtual event (and after!), you'll have the opportunity to make a contribution to the Habitat Chicago COVID-19 Resiliency Fund to help more Chicagoans know the peace and pride of a safe and healthy home.





Note: If you are a Table Host, you can register all of your guests at once! Our Table Host who registers the most guests for our virtual event will receive a complimentary build day for 10 with your coworkers, family, or friends.

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.
