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.

Affordable home inventory is at an all-time low. Our community urgently needs more housing opportunities for lower-income families.  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.


Our Habitat construction team and volunteers are putting the finishing touches on the Columbia Build, a multi-home build project on South Fifth Street in Columbia Borough that will soon be home to Kasahun & Tibka, Yarinet, Shafiq, and Amanuel & Selamawit, along with their beautiful families. The home dedication is scheduled for Saturday, April 20th at 11AM. All are welcome to join us. RSVP and get event details at

Our St. Joseph and Poplar Street Builds in Lancaster’s SoWe neighborhood are in full swing. The rehab projects are expected to be complete later this spring. Kenya, the future homebuyer of the St. Joseph Street Build, has been working on her future home and behind the scenes advocating for affordable homeownership.

Habitat is simultaneously working on two Lebanon City rehabs… our N. 11th Street and Buttonwood Builds. Because of severe fire damage, the N. 11th Street project is a complete tear-down. Most recently, Habitat volunteers carefully dismantled the existing structure in late winter under supervision of the Habitat construction crew and will begin the rebuilding process this spring. Volunteers will alternate between the two projects over the next months.
