NewsWEST CHICAGO SELECTED FOR DUPAGE HABITAT FOR HUMANITY'S FIRST COMMUNITY CARES WEEK
February 22, 2021
Dear West Chicago Resident;
West Chicago has been selected to be a part of DuPage Habitat for Humanity’s first Community Cares Week. Community Cares Week brings together volunteers to do exterior home repair projects for residents in a selected community within Habitat’s service area. We will be bringing together small groups of volunteers from across DuPage County to your community May 25th-May 29th. Since our first Community Cares week is happening in West Chicago, we have decided to call it WeGo Community Cares week! Information on how to volunteer for this event will be available on our website starting in April 2021.
We are currently accepting pre-applications for exterior repair from residents of West Chicago. To qualify, the applicant’s household income has to fall below 80% of Area Median Income for the Chicagoland Area ( chart to the right). Priority will be given to repairs that affect the applicant’s quality of life. A portion of the repair cost will be repaid by the applicant based on their income at time of application.
If you are interested in applying for our Home Repair Program, please fill out and return the attached pre-application to Jill Sobie at the DuPage Habitat for Humanity office located at 1600 E Roosevelt Road, Wheaton, IL 60187. Applications will be accepted in person, by mail, or through email until 5pm on Friday, March 19th.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please feel free to contact Jill Sobie at (630)510-3737 ext. 315
