About Us

The goal of Lawrence Habitat for Humanity is to provide simple, decent, affordable housing for low to moderate income families in Douglas and Jefferson Counties. We believe in a homeownership process that empowers families to create ongoing change in their lives. We’re a Christian-based organization that offers a hand up, not a hand-out.

The journey our homeowners take is a long process that begins with hundreds of hours of sweat equity and continues throughout their no-interest mortgage.

  • Lawrence Habitat was incorporated in 1989 under the guidance of Rev. John Gingerich.
  • Since 1989, Lawrence Habitat has built or repaired more than 100 houses.
  • Lawrence Habitat for Humanity builds in Douglas and Jefferson counties in Kansas. Much of our building has occurred in Lawrence.
