Habitat for Humanity of Champaign County is committed to creating and developing relationships to build and rehabilitate homes to eliminate poverty housing in our community. We are creating partnerships between families, donors, and volunteers. Home sponsors build alongside future homeowners, getting to know the family, volunteers, and the community.
As a non-profit organization, we depend on private and business donations to provide many of our needs. Sponsors give at many levels, providing full home sponsorship’s or partnering with others to fund a new home. You, along with other community resources can help strengthen our communities and change lives.
Here are some wonderful benefits of being a home sponsor:
- Understand the organization’s goal and mission.
