Builds

To learn more about our current construction and renovation projects, please read below.

Since 1986, Lancaster Lebanon Habitat has constructed and rehabilitated homes throughout Lancaster and Lebanon Counties as part of our homeownership program. 

Our building opportunities come to us in many ways. We have built on land donated to us by local churches or private entities. We have constructed homes on properties were condemned homes once stood. We have completely rehabilitated fire-damaged homes donated to us by generous individuals. We are on the constant lookout for space within the region that might be ideal for a single-family homes. In an effort to bring families closer to their place of work, extended family and schools, we look to create affordable housing where there is need.

Currently, we have real estate in both Lancaster and Lebanon to create homeownership for 100 more families over the next five years and the capacity to preserve homeownership for another 150 families. But there is much more work to be done. More affordable homes are needed to meet the existing demand. Please consider joining our team of sponsors and supporters who have helped with previous builds. Visit our Support Us pages to learn how you can make homeownership possible.

LANCASTER CONSTRUCTION

We are finishing up the transformation of four properties on South Christian Street into stable, decent homes for first-time homebuyers. Habitat purchased the properties from the local nonprofit Milagro House in a collaborative partnership to revitalize the historic block in Southeast Lancaster. By turning these once-temporary houses into permanent homes, Habitat continues the revitalization efforts that Milagro House had championed. 

Three homes are complete and now occupied by Habitat homebuyers. Our Habitat construction crew and volunteers are currently working on the last. If you are interested in volunteering at the site, please contact Jacquie at volunteer@llhfh.org.

LEBANON CONSTRUCTION

With the acquisition of three fire-damaged properties on Cumberland Street, we are gearing up to transform the blighted spaces into affordable, energy-efficient homes for future homebuyers.

Habitat volunteers will begin work in late January, following a ceremony on January 24th to officially launch our activity on the sites. Our team will restore the homes to their original, single-family footprint, while preserving their historic façade and charm.

To sponsor a home or donate to the renovation, please contact Bill at bill@llhfh.org or (717) 392-8836. To volunteers, please email Jacquie, Jacquie@llhfh.org, to be added to our Cumberland Build list.
