Habitat for Humanity of Northern Fox Valley is an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. As all affiliates, our mission is to build, rehab and preserve homes for qualifying families in our area. Founded in 1990, Northern Fox Valley focuses its efforts in Carpentersville, Elgin, St. Charles and the surrounding area.
Our goal is to build/rehab twice the number of homes in half the time for partner families! We have built 60 homes in our first two decades. The goal,120 new homes or rehabs in our next decade, from 2011 through 2020. We are currenlly focused on rehabbing foreclosed and abandoned homes to help revitalize the neighborhoods in which we work. And to expand our mission to preserving affordable housing, we are helping homeowners in need rejuvenate the exterior of their existing homes through our "A Brush with Kindness" program. The program bolsters the pride of homeownership revitalizes the appearance of the neighborhood, encourages connections within the community, and helps preserve affordable housing stock
