Chicagoland Habitat for Humanity


Chicagoland Habitat for Humanity (CHFH) is a support organization for the eight Habitat for Humanity affiliates in the Chicagoland area with a goal to significantly increase the number of families served in the region. There is a staggering need for housing support in the Chicago metro area and an opportunity for Habitat to do even more than we do today. CHFH was created to leverage capacity building, growth, marketing and advocacy by working in collaboration with the eight affiliates across Chicagoland.
