Habitat for Humanity of Kankakee County (Habitat) is a local, independently-run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. With the help of generous volunteers and donors Habitat has built 8 homes in our community, and thanks in large part to the efforts of volunteers and donors we have done this without paid staff or overhead. As a non-profit organization, we depend on private and business donations to help support many of our needs.

Habitat for Humanity of Kankakee County seeks to work with those who would not be able to qualify for a conventional mortgage and would have no other way to be able to own a home of their own. Habitat's homeownership program is based upon the concept of partnership. Habitat's commitment to that partnership is to build a simple, decent house and sell it with a 0% interest mortgage, as well as to provide families with the necessary education to become long-term successful homeowners. Habitat gives hard-working people a hand up not a hand-out.

For information on volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, please call Carole Franke at 815-954-7615or email at cfranke@i-kan.org or visit www.kankakeehabitat.org. to learn more.
