Review for Lake County, Illinois, Habitat for Humanity/, Waukegan, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Habitat for Humanity - Lake County truly cares about serving the families in their area. Their goal is to get as many responsible families into safe and affordable homes while also building communities for the long term. They have done that for over 540 people by building or renovating 136 homes while also tithing and supporting the build of 257 homes in the Phillipines for 1285 people.

As a Board member, it is gratifying seeing the passion this Habitat location, the staff and the volunteers take in giving and supporting the community. They embody the Christian spirit through their words and actions. Their vision of Building Homes, Building Lives and Building Communities is truly captured and implemented here.

Their resale shop - ReStore provides buidling materials and appliances to help individuals affordably improve their homes. Their vision of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle is actively taking place through their efforts in this area.

I am proud to be associated with and to serve with Habitat for Humanity in Lake County.
