    Find out how to become a Habitat homeowner, and see what is happening in our Partner Family Community:


    Partnering with Elgin

    What do you do with a home, which is beyond repair, before you can rebuild?   Well one idea is let the local fire department run training exercises.   This property at 482 Freemont will eventually be our 100th home, see note to the right.  But before we demolish the property to rebuild, the fire department wanted to use it to run some training.  So below, the home filled with smoke, not fire, to provide training on search and rescue for the Elgin Fire Department.




    Building Together

    Our mission is giving deserving families the opportunity to build their own future. Regardless of your experience level, Habitat for Humanity of Northern Fox Valley offers many opportunities for you to get involved as an individual, group, or corporation.

    100th House Wall Raising

    On May 20th we raised the first walls at our 100th house being buit in Elgin! The home is across the street from the first home we built in 1991.
