Side Note

Note that free parking is available behind the Church of the Brethren at 260 S 4th St, Chambersburg. Habitat homes are true partnerships. It takes our entire community to build a home. The family that will be purchasing the home has invested more than 300 hours of “Sweat Equity” working on the house and other projects. The future homeowners have participated in financial literacy training, home maintenance education, and more. Habitat for Humanity brings people together and builds Homes, Communities, and Hope, but more than a home, we build Strength, Stability, and Self-reliance.
