Chicago is a unique city, full of grit, determination and possibility—and Habitat Chicago is proud to call it home. Committed to the betterment of all residents, we develop physical and social assets to strengthen neighborhoods with the goal of creating stability for the 4 in 10 Chicagoans living in declining conditions.

Our AmeriCorps members play a key role in the day to day work of Habitat Chicago- leading volunteers on the build site, coordinating and communicating with volunteers from our office, helping to create new systems and and procedures for our constantly growing organization and so much more. 

Benefits beyond the AmeriCorps living allowance and education award include a food and transportation stipend of at least $150/month. In your down time, explore the amazing and diverse neighborhoods throughout Chicago, grab a taco in Pilsen, learn at the Museum of Science and Industry, see historical homes and learn about the history of Chicago Architecture through a boat tour and so much more. Come join us in our quest to help build a stronger Chicago!
