Open Doors

Open Doors is Habitat’s 5-year, $4 million campaign to build 30 homes! 


Open Doors is shaping Habitat’s future, empowering our team with the tools we need to serve more families through affordable homeownership. The initiative seeks to raise $4 million to increase of our construction output by 50 percent through 2026… and put us in the position to build more for years to come. As our organization enters the final leg of our fundraising effort, we will turn to our shared communities to help us cross the finish line by raising the last $1 million of our total goal.

What We've Raised

Our goal is to raise $4 million by end of this year, which will fund our 30-home build goal. We have $800,000 to go! Our team will look to the community over the coming months to help us cross the finish line. You can designate your gift to Open Doors here or contact Vice President of Development and Communications Amy Balestier at and (223) 444-6415 to discuss a gift that is right and meaningful to you. Together, we can build MORE!

Partner Highlight

As we continue to make headway with Open Doors, we continue to ask our community for a helping hand. With outstretched arms, the Bank of Bird-In-Hand has gifted us a most considerable donation of $50,000! They see the need for affordable housing and share the same commitment to the community as we do. Thank you, Bank of Bird-In-Hand, for being a huge part of our story!

How We’re Growing

Open Doors is growing tremendously as we continue to now aid 26 families in our program. A significant stepping stone is one of our first homebuyers since opening applications last year – Kenya. After being of the first to complete 100 hours of service in record breaking time and anxiously awaiting her forever home, we are excited to announce Kenya’s home dedication in Lancaster City’s SoWe neighborhood. Our strong pipeline of projects ensure that this mission continues to move along and produce immediate results as we rapidly approach our $4 million goal!
