Inspired by the leadership and commitment of our local real estate professionals, Habitat Chicago launched the first Real Estate Build in 2019. After seeing these companies raise $175,000 and dedicate over 2,500 hours towards our mission, we were inspired to do it all over again, this time with bigger goals:

1. Raise $200,000 to help construct an affordable Habitat Chicago home.
2. Build a home from start to finish from April through November.



From April - November, two days each month will be reserved on the Habitat Chicago build site for companies participating in the Real Estate Build. All build days run from 8am-3pm. Volunteer day activities can include anything it takes to build a home and no construction experience is necessary. Whether you're painting, roofing, or landscaping, you're sure to have a fulfilling experience building the framework for a family's strong future.


Whether you are looking to get your hands dirty for a day or you hope to engage teams of employees across multiple days, your involvement is vital to the success of Habitat Chicago and the success of our homebuyers. With the ability to tailor your involvement, we'll find the right experience for your team. Here's a glimpse into some of the benefits available:

• A rewarding day(s) on the construction site for your employees
• Home progress and homebuyer updates sent monthly to all volunteers
• Invitation to the dedication ceremony upon home completion
• Logo on site signage
• Team photos captured on-site
• Impact report detailing the difference your team has made
• Company promotion on the Habitat Chicago website
• Company promotion on The Real Estate Build website
• Company promotion on Habitat Chicago social media pages
