Will County Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity connects people so that families can access tools to improve their shelter.  Habitat for Humanity achieves its success by partnering with families, empowering communities, mobilizing volunteers and supporters, engaging corporations, foundations, schools, governments, churches and faith groups.

With so many talented people and thoughtful organizations at work in the arena, we have an opportunity to connect the dots so that efforts within and across organizations better complement each other. Together, we can address the interconnected issues of community stabilization on enough fronts to make a stronger, more efficient and faster difference for those most in need.

A Collaborative Approach

Improving the quality of life for a community can't be done alone and so we strive to find good partners and be a good partner in return. Partnership is a dynamic concept based on the actual needs and opportunities in a community. We work hard to develop specific strategies and structures for each focus community.

Help us build that world!
