Since 1986, Lancaster Lebanon Habitat has constructed and rehabilitated homes throughout Lancaster and Lebanon Counties as part of our homeownership program. Most recently, we completed building an energy-efficient home in Elizabethtown. Our build and renovation sites have included Ephrata, Lebanon, Columbia, Elizabethtown, East Petersburg and Southwest Lancaster, where we have built 96 homes.
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.
