Since 1999 Breaking Ground has provided thoughtful and practical general contracting services to low income communities in Chicago.
Our mission is to increase home ownership throughout the city of Chicago by building high quality affordable homes that help financially and economically stabilize families and communities. We have spent our history navigating complex government and grant programs, working with clients to find practical and wise solutions to their needs, and managing the construction process competently while working with as many local contractors from the neighborhoods we serve as possible to keep money and jobs local. Our bidding process is transparent and designed to allow the families that work with us to make the most sound financial decisions possible.
Breaking Ground can work with City Lots for Working Families, FHA 203K loans, IFF, and many other government programs.
