The Illinois Association of Realtors® (IAR), the only advocate for private property rights at the State Capitol in Springfield and in city halls across Illinois, donated $48,000 to Fox Valley Habitat for Humanity® (FVHFH) at the Neighborhood Sponsorship Division to build a home for a low-income, working family in Aurora, Ill.

The organization identifies potential Habitat partners, working class families of good character that earn $22,000 – $45,000, and offers them “a hand up, not a handout” by rebuilding neighborhoods and providing local, low-income, working families with an affordable and safe place to live. Jeff Coros, a realtor in Naperville and surrounding areas, makes time in his busy schedule to help with FVHFH’s $1.85 million Working Families Rebuilding Neighborhoods campaign.

Formerly the Sponsorship Chairman, Coros gives back to the community as a nine year supporter of Naperville Exchange Club’s Ribfest whose proceeds fund a mission to eliminate child abuse and domestic violence. He is also named in the October issue of Chicago Magazine, which surveyed over 42,000 Chicagoland home buyers of $150,000+ homes over six months from July through December 2013, as a 2014 Five Star Real Estate AgentSM rated for superior performance over 97 percent of Chicagoland Real Estate Agents. Coros strongly believes everyone should have a decent place to live, and is grateful for IAR’s donation to Habitat.

“I’m grateful for IAR’s commitment to homeownership and their contribution to the Fox Valley Habitat for Humanity® mission to build a home in the local Aurora area, where I also serve as a realtor,” said Jeff Coros, Sponsorship Fundraiser, Fox Valley Habitat for Humanity®.                          

In an effort to make a larger impact in the community, Fox Valley Habitat for Humanity® launched the $1.85 million Working Families Rebuilding Neighborhoods campaign to build and rehabilitate 20 homes in the Fox Valley area over the next four years. For more information on sponsoring home builds with Fox Valley Habitat for Humanity®, please contact Jeff at J.Coros@foxvalleyhabitat.org or 630-853-0691.
