My people will abide in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places. Isaiah 32:18
We continue to be humbled by your generosity, whether it's your time, your talents, or your treasure. As the end of the year gives you time to reflect on your blessings, we hope you consider Habitat McLean County in your philanthropy. Your gifts become windows, doors, floorboards, a roof, or a furnace for our partner families, moving them out of the cycle of poverty into safe, decent homes.
Give Thanks and Give Back - Fri, Dec 10
Support a local small business and Women Build when you shop for a cause this holiday season. 

Women Build is a woman-run team of dedicated Habitat volunteers who partner with one of our families every year to empower them to build a better future as they build a house together.

You can support both as you Give Thanks and Give Back.

Retired Crew is Spectacular!

They are also the first to agree to help other community organizations with building projects.

Every year, they're an integral part of the Holiday Spectacular which wrapped up last weekend at the BCPA. Thanks for your expertise, your time, and your big hearts. Habitat McLean County can't do what we do without you!
