Will County Habitat for Humanity is a locally run
affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International,
a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization.
Habitat for Humanity works in partnership
with people in need to build and renovate decent,
affordable housing. The houses then are sold to those in need
at no profit and with no interest charged.
Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual
and corporate donors provide money and materials
to build Habitat houses.
Partner families invest 350 hours
of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes
and/or the homes of others.
Their mortgage payments go into a revolving fund
for Habitat for Humanity to use to build more houses.
