Our Annual Appeal- Enriching Lives in Our Community

 
 
For 44 years, seniors and disabled persons of Lebanon County have relied on Community Homes of Lebanon County to provide quality, affordable housing. In fact, our recent Resident Survey indicates that 96% of respondents would recommend Community Homes to others! In the same survey, residents also indicated that continuing to offer affordable rates was a critical goal to maintain. To accomplish this goal of keeping housing affordable while bringing quality improvements to the living environment of residents, Community Homes is asking for your support.
 
In 2016 we plan to initiate a substantial rehabilitation of Willow Terrace; allowing us to preserve it as affordable housing for decades to come.

We have completed the installation of generators at Poplar Terrace and Willow Terrace that will accommodate each building in the event of a power outage.

We will expanding our Resident Services Department by hiring additional supportive social services coordinators.
Your gift can be designated to one or more of these specific uses, and if you wish, to a specific property. These slated improvements will be carried out based on the total gifts received for each use and location. Send your check today to:

Help Community Homes bring these improvements to the communities our older adults and disabled persons call home.
