About Habitat: Habitat for Humanity International is a non-profit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry. The purpose and goal of Habitat for Humanity International is to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. Habitat invites people of all backgrounds, races and religions to build houses in partnership with families in need.

Seeking to put God's love into action, Lancaster Lebanon Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. Our nonprofit organization builds, renovates and repairs homes, as well as revitalizes neighborhoods, throughout Lancaster and Lebanon Counties. Once separate Habitat affiliates, Lancaster Area Habitat for Humanity and Habitat for Humanity of Lebanon County consolidated in 2016 so that we could expand our services and reach more people in need of safe, affordable homes.

Like Habitat for Humanity International, Lancaster Lebanon Habitat was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, decent place to live. We are a Christian ministry that serves people in need, regardless of race or religion. Volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds are welcome to join our mission of ending substandard housing.
