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:

"Every day I've spent working at Habitat Chicago has been a fulfilling experience because of the people who work here. I am supported by a team of unique individuals who are passionate about their roles and dedicated to the mission of creating a world where everyone has a decent place to live. When I am facing tough obstacles on the job or just need someone to talk to about anything, I'm very grateful to know that I can rely on my fellow Habitat Chicago team members." -Terrence D., Habitat Chicagoan since 2018



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.
