Veterans Build

Empowering military veterans through home ownership, home repairs and camaraderie building events.

Veterans Build 2023

The annual Veterans Build in Chicagoland will kick-off November 2-4, 2023 with teams of veterans building at seven Habitat for Humanity affiliate build sites!

At Habitat for Humanity, we believe that every veteran family deserves a decent place to call home. Our Veterans Build Program works to empower veterans through home ownership opportunities, critical home repairs and camaraderie building events.

Habitat for Humanity affiliates across Chicagoland are actively addressing the lack of affordable housing by partnering with military service members, their families, and veterans to help build and repair affordable housing. Habitat’s hand-up not a hand-out approach asks partner families to invest sweat-equity hours to build their home and volunteer with us.

Get Involved

Home Ownership

We believe every veteran deserves to be welcomed home with dignity, honor, and respect. We are looking to partner with veterans and their families to build a new safe, stable, and affordable home.

Home Repair

Our Habitat affiliates are currently offering home repairs for Veterans who live in DuPage County, McHenry County, northern Kane County, and Will County. Habitat’s Home Repair program is designed to improve the quality of life and living conditions of low-to moderate-income homeowners by focusing on both exterior and interior home repairs.

If you are in need of home repairs please reach out to your local Habitat for Humanity affiliate:

Wintrust Financial is a generous sponsor of the Veterans Home Repair Program.
