Greater Lynchburg Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1988. Since then it has built 299 homes with the help of hundreds of volunteers and ongoing contributions from the area building industry and HBACV member companies. Greater Lynchburg Habitat for Humanity builds houses in partnership with those who have a need, who have a willingness to partner to build, and who are also able to sustain mortgage payments. GLHFH accepts applications all year long, however only 4-5 houses are built per year. Thanks to the generosity of the City of Lynchburg and landowners, GLHFH maintains a property inventory in order to meet the growing needs of families who qualify for Habitat homeownership.
