Posting Description

DuPage Habitat for Humanity is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. Habitat for Humanity's mission is "Seeking to put God's love into action, Habitat brings people together to build homes, community and hope." Our vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. We build homes that are sold to qualifying families with a price structure so that no more than 30% of their household income is used for their mortgage payment.

ReStores are thrift stores that sell used, over-stock, discontinued, and slightly damaged building materials, appliances and furniture with a primary goal to provide a revenue stream used to support the construction of homes for Habitat's housing ministry. An additional goal is to help the environment by repurposing household items and construction materials that would otherwise be thrown out and end up in a landfill.
