Inspired by the leadership and innovation of our local tech scene, Habitat Chicago launched The House That Tech Built in 2018. Together, we raised $200,000 and built a Habitat Chicago home from start to finish. In 2021, we're doing it all again!
Employees from Chicago 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 the $175,000 needed to construct the home.
2. Build the home from start to finish, from June - November.
From June - November, two Fridays 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:
