Social Services Declaration House
In October of 2016, in cooperation with Lancaster Housing Opportunity Partnership, REAL Life Community Services purchased the building formerly known as the “Denver House”. Our vision was to renovate the building in order to provide affordable apartments and offer a community service “Hub”.
This could not have been done without the tenacious work of LHOP’s CEO, Ray D’Agostino, and his team! From October through December of 2016, over 200 volunteers worked for over 2000 hours to gut the building. This was to get it ready for engineers to decide the best plan of attack in turning a nineteenth-century hotel into a twenty-first-century apartment building and health center. Over 27 dumpsters of debris were taken to the county dump and many thousands of pounds of metal were recycled from the old pipes, radiators and other metal parts of the building.
Our offices are now located inside the Declaration House building. As well as 10 affordable apartments, a discount grocery store, and affordable healthcare! If you would like more information on anything please call our office at (717) 336-7797. To stay up to date with what were doing, follow our page on facebook!
Would you like to be apart of helping us raise the thermometer?
We have raised $1,500, and we need to raise $9,000!
REAL Life Community Services would like to add a playground out back of the Declaration House for any children currently residing there. Now that we have the Declaration House full, we want something that the kids can enjoy! We can not complete this vision without the help from our community! We would love to have you be apart of this with us! To donate click on the give tab or call the office at 717-336-7797!
