DuPage Habitat for Humanity
DuPage Habitat for Humanity believes that ALL people have the right to a decent place to live. It is the only agency in DuPage County focused on eliminating poverty housing through homeownership. A major challenge of the refugee and immigrants is finding stable housing that will accelerate their amalgamation into their new community. Habitat seeks to help fill this gap, by providing them with decent affordable homes and giving them hope for the future.
