Founded in 1976, Habitat for Humanity is a worldwide non-profit housing organization seeking to eliminate substandard housing by building or refurbishing decent, affordable homes for families who cannot afford to purchase them through conventional means. Holy Family is associated with the Northern Fox Valley chapter. We work in conjunction with 7 other parishes in the Palatine area and our work has been focused recently in Elgin.
You don’t need to be an experienced craftsperson to help. The basic ability to swing a hammer, carry material or cut a piece of wood are the basic skills you can contribute. You will be supervised by experienced trades people. There is always something to be done to match your skills. Volunteers to provide lunch for the workers is also an opportunity to contribute. We usually work on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8:30 am to about 3:00 pm.
