Mission Statement: Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.
Vision Statement: A world where everyone has a decent place to live.
We work to expand home ownership opportunities for local residents by providing decent, affordable housing options that are made available through collaboration with qualified families, human service partners and donors.
As an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, Greater Lycoming Habitat for Humanity is committed to making an impact in the awareness and accessibility of decent, affordable housing for low-income families. We believe that creating opportunities for success and stability for families contributes to the health and strength of local communities.
