Together at Habitat Chicago

Improving the quality of life for a community is work that cannot be done by individuals. It takes an entire team, united together. Together, we work intensely, we brainstorm relentlessly, we compete in Office Olympics, we learn as we go, we challenge each other, we collaborate, and, most importantly, we support each other. Get to know us. 

My perspective on joining the team:

"I found a space where curiosity and creativity are celebrated, an authentic team that believes in and loves what they are doing, and a mission that drives me out of bed every morning with pride and determination. I look back with gratitude that I was welcomed to this team, first as a year-long volunteer, and now as a staff member. I know I will be inspired to work as hard as I can and think as deeply as I can every single day, because that is what everyone around me is doing. What I ended up finding was my home." -Deena, Habitat Chicagoan since 2015 



Yes, we all work because of the mission. At the same time, we want each team member to have the tools and support we need to create healthy, productive lives of our own. After all, we couldn’t talk so incessantly about quality of life in our work if we didn’t take it seriously at our core also.
