Our organization will live out the mission of DePaul by serving the human needs of others and contribute to the quality of life of people right here in Chicago. Our members will develop skills and form meaningful relationships through their participation in our service events. Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1976 by Millard Fuller. The goal was simple. Fuller imagined a group of people of all backgrounds working together to provide housing for those in need. The organization believes, most fundamentally, in the value of the home as the source of security, and pride for families all across the world. How can children grow and learn without a place of shelter they may call their own? How may families foster unity and love without a home that is theirs? The mission of the DePaul University Habitat for Humanity chapter is to stimulate and capture the imagination and passion of the DePaul community in order to productively involve them in this work: the building and rehabilitation of homes throughout the United States and abroad. As we involve ourselves in the unique communities outside of our campus, we seek to educate our campus about the value of decent and affordable housing. We wish to organize bi-quarterly or bi-monthly fundraising/build events. Our aim is to reach growing numbers of DePaul University students to get them involved with our organization.
