"I have seen so many good deeds -- people helped, lives improved -- because someone cared. Do what you can to show you care about other people, and you will make our world a better place."
-- Rosalynn Carter
Last year, we partnered with 172 Illinois families in need of adequate housing, and they all moved in to celebrate Christmas in their new homes!
The most recent was the Utterback family in Lincoln, IL. Their house dedication was on December 23rd. Click here to enjoy photos of that event.
Please make a tax-deductible donation so that we may help 200 more hard-working, limited-income families in 2013 leave deplorable living conditions and gain stability and hope for their futures. Thank you!

Habitat for Humanity of Illinois supports and partners with the Illinois Habitat for Humanity Affiliates and ReStores, expanding their capacity through communication, advocacy, resource development, and education in order to serve more families in need of safe, decent, affordable housing.
Habitat for Humanity of Illinois is a non-profit, Christian housing organization dedicated to eradicating poverty housing. Founded in 1999, the organization works statewide in association with the 49 Habitat affiliates, which collectively built or repaired 172 houses in 2011, and the 18 Habitat ReStores, which are similar to home improvement stores. From 1983 through 2011, 1,731 Habitat homes have been constructed or rehabbed in Illinois.
Based in Oswego, Habitat Illinois is the State Support Organization, established with the purpose of strengthening Illinois affiliates, advocating for affordable housing, and securing resources – both financial and material – that would not otherwise be available to individual affiliates.
