Own a Home

"What if you don't have a home? Or it's not safe, is overcrowded, or not affordable?" What single mom Julie experienced happens to many.

Since 1990, Lakeshore Habitat has been building strength, stability, and independence through affordable housing.

While the need for affordable housing grows, Lakeshore Habitat has continued to increase its capacity to build and repair homes, partnering with families and individuals in our community who are working hard to achieve their dreams of affordable homeownership.
