York Habitat recently broke ground on the 817-819 East Prospect Duplex! Volunteer construction dates will open up starting on January 15th. We are excited to see all of our volunteers on the build site!
The Knights of Columbus invited Mark Mattern as their guest speaker Friday night for their Double Star Celebration. The Knights also made a generous donation. Great cake and ice cream for dessert.
Thank you so much to all donors that make our mission to provide affordable housing in York County possible!

York Habitat for Humanity will dedicate their 132nd home to first-time homeowner Kelley Page and her son on Saturday, November 3, 2018. This property, a three-bedroom two-story unit, is located at 109 N. Main Street in Dover. The public is invited to attend.
As with all of York Habitat’s homes, this Habitat for Humanity house was built primarily by volunteers, including staff from several local businesses. Many local organizations and churches also contributed countless hours completing the project. Close to 4,000 volunteer hours were completed in building this home including several shifts of just female workers during York Habitat’s Women Build Week sponsored by Lowes.
Funds for this project were provided by, State of PA, PHFA’s PHARE Program, First Energy, Columbia Gas and the Horn Foundation.
Helping to complete the build, and donating materials as well as expertise, were Kinsley Materials, Exterior Expressions, The Wolf Organization, York Building Products, York/Adams Professional Masons Association, York Technical Institute and York Vo-Tech.
The Page family has been working with York Habitat for Humanity for more than a year now with the actual construction taking just six months. During that time, Kelley prepared for becoming a homeowner by attending Habitat classes and keeping a strict monthly budget. Kelley was also required to perform at least 225 hours of “Sweat Equity” to the project. Friends, family and co-workers of the Page’s also put in hours working on the new home.
The official Dedication Ceremony will begin at 10:00 AM on Saturday, November 3rd and members of the public are invited. An open house will take place immediately following the Dedication Ceremony, to give everyone a chance to tour the home and meet Kelley and her son.
Parking for those attending the dedication is available on the grassy area behind the home. Guests are asked to turn on Butter Road off of Main Street (Route 74) and then take a left onto City Hall Alley to the parking area. Please contact York Habitat with any questions.

About York Habitat for Humanity
Funded mainly by private donations, York Habitat provides a “hand up, not a hand out” by offering qualified residents low or zero percent interest on a 30 year mortgage. York Habitat for Humanity, celebrating its 33rd year serving York County, is a volunteer driven, Christian-based housing ministry that builds safe, decent, and affordable homes in partnership with local, lower-income people living in substandard housing conditions. With the completion of York Habitat’s 132nd home, more than 600 men, women, and children will be living in Habitat Homes in York County. Since 1985, York Habitat has created over $7.5 million worth of new or rehabilitated affordable housing, which generates more than $300,000 in tax revenue for York County. Over 2,250 volunteers work with York Habitat annually.
The staff at York Habitat is now certified in first aid and CPR through the American Heart Association. Many Thanks to our Instructor/Paramedic Wayne from the West York Ambulance Association. We believe it’s vital to be able to care for our volunteers, neighbors and community and this is one more way to show that we care!
