In 2019, 14 companies from the Chicago tech scene united for a common purpose: to build and fund a home for a deserving family, as part of the second annual The House that Tech Built Initiative. Together, these companies raised $235,000 and dedicated over 2,500 hours of their time. In 2020, we're doing it all again!
Employees from Chicago's tech companies are rolling up their sleeves to build and fund a Habitat Chicago home in West Pullman. With our valued tech partners, we have two big goals:
1. Raise $200,000 to help fund construction of the home.
2. Build the home from start to finish, from April - November.
From April - November, two days each month will be reserved on the Habitat Chicago build site for companies participating in The House that Tech Built. All build days run from 8am - 3pm.
Volunteer day activities can include anything it takes to build a home from start to finish. No construction experience is necessary - in fact, most of our volunteers are brand new to the world of construction.
Whether you're painting, roofing, or landscaping, you're sure to have a rewarding experience building the framework for a stronger future.
Whether you want to get your hands dirty for a single day or you're looking to engage several teams of employees across multiple days, your involvement is invaluable.
With the ability to customize your participation, we're sure to create an optimized experience for your team. Here's a glimpse into some of the benefits available:
