About York Habitat for Humanity

York Habitat for Humanity is a volunteer driven, Christian based housing ministry that builds safe, decent, and affordable homes in partnership with lower-income York County residents living in substandard housing. Funded mainly by private donations, York Habitat provides a “hand up, not a hand out” by offering qualified families interest free, 30 year mortgages. With the completion of York Habitat’s 120th home in 2016, over 500 men, women, and children live in Habitat Homes in York County! Since 1985, York Habitat has created over $7.2 million worth of new or rehabilitated affordable housing, which generates more than $300,000 in tax revenue. Over 7,950 volunteers work with York Habitat annually, 2250 of which are construction volunteers.

 

I think of all the different human and social services that I have seen come and go in this community and I cannot think of anything more satisfying than being able to provide a real home for someone.
