Our Story

No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve to have a decent life, to feel strong and stable, and to know we have the power to take care of ourselves and build our own futures.

Lake-Geauga Habitat for Humanity supports our neighbors to achieve this strength and independence through homeownership. Our everyday efforts help demonstrate how affordable, decent housing provides people with the opportunity to lead healthy lives in sturdy homes. This impact is transformational not just for individuals but for our entire community – fighting poverty, revitalizing neighborhoods, strengthening our economy, and creating stability for the next generation.
