Current Projects


Home Preservation

Our Home Preservation program provides exterior work on a home to help keep it in good condition; painting, patching, minor repairs and landscaping are just examples of the type of work that can be conducted on a home under this program. We have several Home Preservation projects to be conducted this summer, and we’ll have them listed on VolunteerUP! as soon as Habitat and the Homeowner are ready to get them done.

Critical Home Repair

Our Critical Home Repair program is for when a house needs extensive work to address health and safety issues or code violations. These repairs are considered essential for safety, security or just healthy living conditions, and can range from minor modifications to major repairs. Please see “Services” for more information and check out our project schedule on VolunteerUP if you’re able to help.

Veterans Repair Corps

This home repair program supports our veterans who need assistance with repairs to their homes. HFHMC is proud that we are one of only 20 affiliates nationwide accepted into the Repair Corps program, and because of that we do accept applications from areas adjacent to McHenry County. Please see “Services” for more information and check out our project schedule on VolunteerUP if you’re able to help.

New Construction Duplex Project, Redbud Ct in Wonder Lake

We will be starting our 2nd duplex in the Meadows of West Bay subdivision in the Village of Wonder Lake in September 2018. Located next door to our 2017 new construction duplex, we’re taking all the lessons learned on the 1st one to make our 2nd build go a little faster. Working alongside our future homeowners, volunteers will take over after a contractor has dug and poured the foundation and build the home from the floor up.  When completed, this will be (2) 2-story 3-bedroom 1 1/2-bath homes for 2 new Habitat Homeowners. We have plenty of volunteer opportunities for this project, and if you’d like to learn how to build a home from the ground up, contact our Volunteer Coordinator by Email at or by phone at 815-759-9002. You can also sign-up through our build schedule on VolunteerUP!

Rehab of 121 E Beech Ave in Woodstock

This house is in good shape but needs some updating. After a quick removal of carpeting and materials we’re going to reuse, we’ll be painting, flooring and replacing the roof. If you’re interested in joining us you can see our whole schedule on VolunteerUP!, or contact our Volunteer Coordinator at 815-759-9002 or for more information.
