Chestnut Housing

For the past decade Chestnut Housing has been committed to providing quality housing to families and individuals experiencing homelessness, and to supporting affordable housing solutions in the City of Lancaster. What began as an outreach of East Chestnut Street Mennonite Church in response to neighbors experiencing housing and food insecurity has grown into a full-fledged nonprofit organization respected by partners and local officials for its dedication and can-do spirit. 
Chestnut Housing provides affordable rental housing to people experiencing homelessness because a home is the foundation of a healthy and fulfilling life. We connect people and communities of faith with tangible ways to create more affordable homes in Lancaster.
