Habitat for Humanity of York County is seeking men and women who are skilled in construction to assist with building and repairing homes. We always welcome everyone regardless of skill level to participate in our work, however, we do have a specific need for skilled volunteers.
Please join us on Thursday, November 9, from 7:30am - 8:30am as we celebrate you, our volunteers and partners for supporting Habitat's work of partnering with families to achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves and their children.
Crystal is one of Habitat’s newest homebuyers in process. Crystal is the hard-working mother of an 18 year old son who is legally deaf. Both are very excited to begin construction on their new home in spring of 2018. Crystal applied to the program some two years before she was approved to begin her journey as a homebuyer with Habitat.
The devastation of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have left thousands of families homeless and broken. Habitat volunteers are onsite and have begun the process of cleanup and providing encouragement to the families who have lost so much.

While increased demand in the rental market is helping to drive recovery from the Great Recession the number of cost burden renters is at a historical high as 11.4 million people still struggle to afford a decent place to rent. Additionally, the ability of Americans to afford the purchase of a home is at an all-time low, resulting in home ownership levels falling to the lowest and a half century.
