On February 8, 2019, The Daily Chronicle reported that Habitat for Humanity of DeKalb County was, or may continue to be, a subject of a material diversion of assets in an article titled, "Sycamore man charged with stealing over $10K from Habitat for Humanity." For this reason, we have issued a Moderate Concern CN Advisory as the allegations have yet to be confirmed. For more information regarding this matter, please see The Daily Chronicle article.

This charity has received a Moderate Concern Advisory due to an open or pending investigation regarding allegations of possible illegal activity, improper conduct, organizational mismanagement, or other matters of concern.
