DuPage Habitat for Humanity

homes, community, hope + you

Join us for DuPage Habitat's Virtual Benefit Lunch-in as we commit ourselves to continuing-- and accelerating-- our work in DuPage County to ensure that everyone has a decent place to call home. As the economic shocks from the crisis ripple out, the need for affordable, safe and healthy housing is more apparent than ever. You can help ensure everyone has a stable place to call home, even after this crisis, by joining us for DuPage Habitat's Virtual Benefit Lunch-in.

Though we cannot gather physically, we are striving to make this luncheon the best! Whether you can contribute $5 or $5,000, all gifts bring us closer to a city where everyone has a safe, warm and dry place to call home. Support the event today.


Keynote speaker and honored guest:
The Honorable Eveyln Sanguinetti

Evelyn Sanguinetti


Evelyn Sanguinetti is the Executive Director of the HOPE Fair Housing Center. She served as not only the first Latina Lieutenant Governor of the state, but of the entire country. Sanguinetti is a wife, working mother of three and an attorney by trade. Sanguinetti was formerly an adjunct professor of law, an Assistant Illinois Attorney General and a Wheaton City Councilwoman.


HOPE was established in 1968 after the riots that followed Martin Luther King Junior’s assassination, prompting racial unrest and economic instability in all areas. As the oldest fair housing center in Illinois, HOPE is dedicated to eliminating housing discrimination and segregation in all its forms, serving DuPage, Kane, and portions of Cook County, as well as 28 counties in Northern and North Central Illinois.


DuPage Habitat for Humanity and Evelyn Sanguinetti share a common belief: everyone deserves a decent place to live. As Illinois’ 47th Lieutenant Governor, Sanguinetti focused on helping to improve the lives of all Illinoisans through the delivery of more efficient government, providing health care access to all regions of the state, quality educational opportunities to all residents regardless of income or location, and economic opportunity to small businesses throughout the state.
