BENEFITING: Lancaster Area Habitat for Humanity
EVENT DATE: Jan 15, 2013
Lancaster Area Habitat for Humanity is a non-denominational Christian ministry that mobilizes volunteers to build community, revitalize neighborhoods, and transform lives in partnership with community organizations and working families in need of safe, decent affordable homes across Lancaster County.
In 2012, Habitat for Humanity surpassed the milestone of serving over 200 families in Lancaster County. Since 1986, Habitat for Humanity’s “hand up” housing model has resulted in safe, decent, affordable homes for 206 families in Lancaster, Columbia, Denver, Ephrata, Elizabethtown, Mount Joy, Millersville, and Quarryville and 206 international families in Latin America and the Caribbean through our tithe.
Our mission is not just to build a home, it is to build community. The ultimate goal is to transform the lives of families and children and give them opportunities. To honor the 200 families we have served, we established the Many Homes, One Community campaign to raise $200,000 to prepare to serve the next generations of Habitat homeowners and clients through homeownership, home repairs, disaster recovery, and neighborhood revitalization.
Our goal is to serve up to 30 families in 2013, but we need your help today. To date, we have raised $150,819. Can we count on you to raise the roof to build homes, community and hope? Please give generously. Thank you!
