Faith Community Homes is a charitable, non-profit 501(c)3 organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and staffed by professionals knowledgeable in the areas of poverty, housing and social service.
Formed in 2003, Faith Community Homes is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that partners with churches, governmental entities, businesses and individuals to serve and empower low-income, working families in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, including those who reside in Arlington Heights and Palatine.
Low-income families are often faced with spending 50% or more of their income on housing. With a guideline that no more than 30% of a family’s income should go toward housing. FCH attempts to fill the gap for qualified families by paying a portion of housing costs (rent) for two years. Additionally, families receive guidance from trained volunteer mentors who meet with them at least twice monthly for the entire time they are in the program.
We empower parents by teaching solid financial principles and crucial career-advancement and life skills. We focus on building up personal and financial confidence and strength. We equip families to build stable households for happy families.
When everyone works together, beautiful transformations take place. We witness program participants move from underemployment to building successful careers. We see people gain renewed hope. We see people working hard to fulfill their dreams for a brighter future.
