Habitat for Humanity Lake County, IL IL
Habitat for Humanity Lake County (HFHLC) is a Christian housing ministry which welcomes all people dedicated to building, renovating and repairing decent, affordable housing for families in need, while empowering families to help themselves. HFHLC builds partnerships with diverse members of the community which break down the walls that divide and builds a sense of community among all people. HFHLC seeks to make safe, simple, decent housing for all people a matter of conscience and action. HFHLC was established in 1989 to provide affordable homes that lower income families can own. Homeowner families are selected according to their need, their ability to repay the no-profit, no-interest mortgage, and their partnership to contribute 500 hours of sweat equity. The Habitat ReStore accepts and then sells new and used building materials and household goods further supporting affordable housing, while keeping tons of material from the landfill. It is at 3545 Grand Avenue in Gurnee.
