Status: In Progress
Type: 3,500 square-foot Shelter


Located in Chicago’s near northwest suburbs, Harbour House is a new 3,500-square-foot shelter that will offer temporary housing and support services for young women and transgender youth experiencing homelessness. Kinzie Builders is providing construction services at a reduced rate to The Harbour, the Park Ridge, IL based not-for-profit organization that will operate the shelter.

The new $1.34-million project was delayed from its original start date due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on fundraising efforts. Kinzie Builders was among the many supporters who stepped in to keep the project moving forward by not only offering its services at a reduced rate, but also by engaging subcontractors to do the same, passing the additional savings on to The Harbour. 

Groundbreaking on the project took place in the summer of 2021, just as Kinzie Builders celebrated its 10-year anniversary. Kinzie Builders Founder and Principal Steve Spinell had this to say about opportunity to support The Harbour’s initiative:

“Since Kinzie’s founding, we’ve made a pledge to give back to the community both in terms of financial support, as well as by donating our time and talents. We couldn’t think of a better way to pay forward our success than to have a hands-on role in helping The Harbour continue its mission, which over the past 50 years has helped thousands of young women experiencing homelessness create a path for their own personal success. We are beyond grateful to have this opportunity.”

The Harbour is continuing to raise money for Harbour House and its programming to support young women and transgender youth experiencing homelessness. Visit harbour2020.com to donate to the Capital Campaign.
