Our Current Project-Completed in Just 6 Months

This is our current project, located in Elgin. It was a rehab project that started in October and will be finished mid-April.  While we didn’t do as much structural work on this project as we did on our last one, we still did a  lot of work. This involved drywall repair, painting, new kitchen cabinets, floors throughout the house and updating the bathrooms. We also replaced and expanded the deck, re-sided the home and installed new windows. It’s like a brand new home!!

Thanks once again to our hard working volunteer construction crew, lunch providers, Partner Churches and donors who helped another family buy their own home.

As an arm of Habitat for Humanity of Northern Fox Valley, Spring of Life is a partnership of churches and community members in Chicago’s northwest suburbs. We are a group of volunteers--many of us members of our partner churches---and we create affordable housing for qualified families.

Since 1997, we have enabled 13 families to grab their piece of the American Dream--a home of their own. In August of 2016, we completed our 13th home and changed another family's life forever.

**********No Free Homes***********

A common myth is that we give homes away. This is not the case. Habitat for Humanity of Northern Fox Valley provides interest free loans and Spring of Life provides the sweat equity. All homeowners must qualify for a mortgage by

1. Being able to make the monthly mortgage payments on the interest-free, no profit loan
2. Proving need for affordable housing
3. Committing to 500 hours of sweat equity in the construction of the home.
