Important news!

Due to part time staff and continuing Coronavirus restrictions, our office hours are limited. We check our voicemail regularly, so call and leave us a message with your name, number and your need or question, and we will return your call as quickly as possible. Or you can email us.

If you are interested in becoming a homeowner, we are still accepting applications. Refer to the “Family Selection” page for downloadable application form, instructions and requirements. If you prefer, you can pick up an application at our office (call first), or ask for one to be mailed to you.

Our Critical Home Repair program is temporarily on hold. Again, watch for announcements when we resume this service.

Your support through financial donations and items for our resale store is most appreciated, especially as we work our way through the pandemic and restrictions. You can donate online through the Donations page using PayPal. For more information, see the Donations page.

Thanks for your interest in Habitat for Humanity and have a blessed day!

Our Newest Homeowner!

Thanks to everyone who applied to become a homeowner partner with us! You made our choice a difficult one! You can re-apply when we open the application process again – tentatively set for Spring, 2020. The Family Selection committee is pleased to announce the Board approved their recommendation of Tiandra Lashai (“Shay”) Massey as our next Habitat homeowner. Her home is being built in partnership with YouthBuild, a GED/vocational training program administered here in Lancaster by Communities in Schools. YouthBuild Students will be participating in all areas of home construction, working alongside Shay, her family, and our volunteers. Since site preparation and foundation work has already begun, volunteers will be needed soon! Contact us if you’d like to sign up as an individual or bring a volunteer team! Welcome to the Habitat family, Shay!
