    Congratulations to Sheena, her fiance, and her 5 children on becoming our 97th Habitat homeowners!! We celebrated the completion of our 25th Anniversary, 25-Day Blitz Build home with over 50 incredible volunteers, sponsors, donors, and supporters on July 31, 2015. Sheena's house blessing was the first to include a mortgage signing where she was able to purchase her home on-site with friends and family present.

    Donor Spotlight

    Two Great Teams Come Together

    On Saturday, September 12, we hosted both Wintrust and Prescient Solutions at our project on St. Charles Street in Elgin. Wintrust has been a long time Chicagoland and Northern Fox Valley Habitat supporter, while Prescient Solutions came out for their very first (and we hope not the last!!) build with us. One advantage of having a duplex project is the ability to host larger groups, and in this case 2 great support teams working together. 

    If you are interested in receiving more information on how to get your work team involved, please contact Bill Klaves, Associate Director, at, or call 847-836-1432.
