Habitat for Humanity

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit, ecumenical, Christian organization dedicated to eliminating substandard housing and homelessness worldwide and to making adequate, affordable shelter a matter of conscience and action. This ministry was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, decent place to live in dignity and safety.

During the school year, PCHS partners with the local Will County affiliate to fulfill the four major functions of our campus chapter: building, fundraising, advocating, and educating.

Over the summer and occasionally during the school year, PCHS students travel to build and refurbish homes near and far, giving us an opportunity to make a difference.  Being a part of Habitat for Humanity is fun, fulfilling, and a great way to make new friends! Join us, and be a part of the planning and building of homes for families in the community.

Support the ReStore

restorelogoA ReStore is a retail facility that sells overstocked, discontinued, and new or used building materials and home furnishings donated by manufacturers, businesses, contractors and individuals. These materials are then incorporated in the construction of Habitat homes or are sold to the general public at a fraction of the retail price.  The ReStore will be an ongoing source of income for our Will County affiliate. Proceeds are used to support local Habitat for Humanity building efforts and construction projects.

Help support our mission by donating to the Will County ReStore, 200 S. Larkin Ave., Joliet, IL 60435.

Donations can be delivered to the ReStore showroom during store hours (pick-up for larger items can also be arranged). All donations are tax deductible as allowed by law (a donation receipt will be provided).
