COVID-19 Update: Our construction site is reopening to volunteers beginning May 1st, 2021.
Building a Habitat Chicago home is a tangible expression of your desire for everyone to live a stable and healthy life. No experience is necessary to be a part of our team, just a belief in our mission, a positive attitude, and a willingness to learn.
By working alongside current and future Habitat homeowners, other volunteers like yourself, and Habitat Chicago Crew Leaders, you'll see that your effort and our experience can create a change that will be seen for generations to come.
With one in 10 Chicagoans currently living in substandard housing, the time to build is now.
Let’s dig in.
What does it take to build 1 Habitat Chicago home?

Most importantly, it takes you and your belief that everyone deserves a healthy place to live.
Join us as an individual to lend a hand and meet others or organize a team build to spend a day bonding and working together outside. We work alongside large companies, small businesses, high schools, colleges, families, friends, faith groups, and everyone in between.
Whether you arrive by yourself or with your entire team, you will leave as part of the Habitat Chicago family.
