Join us for an unforgettable experience that combines two of life’s greatest pleasures: shopping and making a difference. 

At our Sip & Shop event, we’ve crafted a unique and enjoyable way to raise money for affordable housing while indulging in retail therapy.

But this event is about more than just shopping and sipping – it’s about community and empowerment. Every purchase you make and every sip you take goes towards building affordable housing to be purchased by families who partner with Habitat for Humanity. We believe that everyone deserves a safe and stable place to call home, and your participation brings us one step closer to making that a reality.

So come join us, shop with purpose, sip with a heart and help us build a brighter future where affordable housing is a reality for all.  Together, we can make a lasting impact and create change in the lives of those in need.

You helped us raise $15,000 in 2023 – join us Spring of 2024 to break the record and build up McHenry County!  

In 2022 we raised $12,000 towards empowering families in McHenry County to homeownership!

Habitat homeowners are people we see every day. They work in our schools, our hospitals and our manufacturing and all have one thing in common; the rapidly rising cost of rent and housing in McHenry County. For nearly 30 years Habitat McHenry County has worked alongside families to build the foundation they need to improve their lives and in turn, build up McHenry County.  Our Homeownership Program does not give homes away.  We offer an opportunity to break the cycle and purchase a home at an affordable mortgage no more than 30% of a family’s gross income. 

The shortage of affordable, safe and adequate housing is a crisis affecting all income levels, but particularly low-income families and individuals.  High housing costs, combined with low wages and affordable housing support, has made it difficult for many people to find and maintain stable housing. Our sweat equity model requires families to contribute labor, alongside volunteers, making it possible for them to purchase and own a home they otherwise could not afford. 



We empower individuals to take control of their housing situation, giving them stability and security for a lifetime.
