DuPage Habitat For Humanity is a locally run affiliate of Habitat For Humanity International. It is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization that serves DuPage County and works in partnership with people in need to build modest and affordable housing by building and renovating houses using donated materials and volunteer labor.
These houses are then sold to limited income families needing decent shelter. Those who quality must demonstrate their commitment to home ownership by investing 250 hours of sweat equity and repaying the cost of their house through a no-interest, long term loan.
This "giving a hand up--not a hand out" approach gives families pride in their accomplishment of ownership of their first home.
