In the spring of 1988, a group of concerned citizens met in a local church to discuss the lack of decent, affordable housing in Lynchburg. Three months later, Greater Lynchburg Habitat for Humanity (GLHFH) was chartered as an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. The first GLHFH home was dedicated in January 1989 and the 300th home was dedicated in December 2017.
Thanks to the generosity and passion of local churches, businesses, and individuals, Greater Lynchburg Habitat for Humanity continues to build affordable houses for families who need a hand up.
