Habitat for Humanity of McHenry County

What We Do

Habitat is best known for its homeownership program where volunteers build and rehab simple, quality homes in partnership with qualifying low-income families and the community. The homes are then sold with affordable, zero percent interest mortgages, with a 30-year commitment to each new homeowner and the community in which they live. Habitat also preserves homeownership by helping qualified low-income homeowners repair and maintain their homes through our Critical Home Repair programs.
