Housing is a basic human need

Housing is the basic necessity of every human being along with food  and water. Sadly, many people are without a simple decent place to live safely and in dignity.

How we help

Together with the assistance of Crossroads Missions, seven parishes of Vicariate VE aim to assist Will County Habitat for Humannity through fundraising for building materials, and by constucting the house framing on the Build Day.

The walls are transported to the home site where Will County Habitat for Humanity will complete the house with other volunteers and skilled tradespeople.

Upon completion, the home will be dedicated to a family in need.

How you can help


You don’t need special skills or abilities to be a participant.  We need children, teens (under 18 requires parental supervision) adjults, and seniors for a variety of roles.


Friday only:  Volunteers 18 and over: Measure and cut lumber (radial saw experience desired).

Crew Leaders

Oversee build crews. (Trained on Friday)


Swing a hammer and pound some nails! Assemble the wall sections.


Help plan, prepare, or serve food. 


Help us register all of our wonderful volunteers.

Cleaners / Safety

Assist with traffic flow.  Help keep area neat and safe during and after the event.

Wall Loaders

After walls are built, load wall sections into truck for delivery to construction site.  Follow truck to the site and unload walls (unloading at the site is tentative).
