The CHUCK Center (Connie Hillman Family Foundation Urban Construction Knowledge Center) will serve as Habitat Tucson’s construction hub, warehouse, and training center.
The facility is located at the intersection of Curtis and Davis roads, in the Flowing Wells neighborhood. The CHUCK will feature over 15,000 square feet of storage, classroom, apartments for AmeriCorps, and office space that supports affordable housing and workforce development.

The Workforce Center will create a pathway into the trades by exposing students to all phases of affordable home construction. Students will be able to access job training, internship opportunities, and real-world experience.
The CHUCK will pave a solid foundation for future economic growth in Tucson.
Our vision is to empower aspiring tradespeople to build their careers locally through both classroom and hands-on learning.
The CHUCK Center’s innovations in design and production include 11 styles of prefabricated modular panels. The wall panels will be built by students and volunteers in a quality controlled environment and accelerate our ability to rapidly deploy housing solutions in Southern Arizona.
