If you’ve driven down Cumberland Street in Lebanon, you might have seen them… a string of fire-damaged homes on the 400 block. The 2016 fire was so severe—in fact, it was deemed the city’s worst in 30 years—that it left the properties in complete disrepair.
But that’s about to change. With the acquisition of the properties, Lancaster Lebanon Habitat is gearing up to transform the blighted spaces into affordable, energy-efficient homes for three future homebuyers.
Beginning late this summer, our team will being to restore the homes to their original, single-family footprint, while preserving their historic façade and charm. In addition to the need for donations to fund this project, we will also rely on many volunteers to work on the sites.
Building Hope Breakfast
On June 20th, we will officially launch our Cumberland effort with a Building Hope Breakfast at Lebanon Valley College’s Mund College Center. All are welcome to attend this free event to view our design plans, meet future homebuyers and learn more about donating time or financial support. If you cannot attend, please see below for how you can make a contribution in support of the project.
How to Donate to the Build
We are launching something brand new, our first CrowdBuilding Campaign! From now until July 31, we will be raising remaining funding needed to complete one of the three Cumberland Street homes. With your help, together we can rebuild the 400 block of Cumberland.
