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 in the process of turning four homes 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.This neighborhood is where Milagro House first opened its doors in 1998. By transforming these properties into permanent housing, Habitat continues the revitalization efforts that Milagro House had championed. 

Two homes are complete and now occupied by Habitat homebuyers. Our Habitat construction crew and volunteers are currently working on the remaining two homes. 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 and City contractors have been working on shoring up the properties, making it safe for our construction ramp-up this summer. 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.
