Most importantly, it takes you and your belief that everyone deserves a decent place to live.
You may come as an individual who wants to lend a hand and meet others, or as a small group who wants to spend time together. We have worked alongside corporations, small businesses, schools, faith groups, families, groups of friends, and everything in between.
Whether you arrive as an individual or a team, you will leave as part of the Habitat Chicago community.
