Lancaster County Habitat for Humanity is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing. The houses then are sold to those in need at no profit and with no interest charged.
Volunteers provide most of the labor, and individual and corporate donors provide money and materials to build Habitat houses. Partner families themselves invest hundreds of hours of labor - "sweat equity" - into building their homes and the homes of others. Their mortgage payments go into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses.

The affiliate has raised almost $9,000 to begin a rehab house and is waiting for U.S. Labor Department approval to start a new construction on the corner of Penny Street and Meeting in Lancaster, SC. The affiliate will post a volunteer work schedule as soon as it is available.
