Our History

Habitat for Humanity International was founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller. Today, Habitat for Humanity is a true world leader in addressing the issues of poverty housing.

Since 1989, Habitat for Humanity of Lenawee County volunteers, staff, and donors have helped over 90 people achieve their dream of homeownership through building and rehabilitating across Lenawee County.

In 2006, the Habitat of Lenawee ReStore was opened and began to take donations and sell to the public to support the mission. In 2015, we relocated our store to its current facility on US-223 in Adrian. This move more than tripled the square footage of our store and increased our ability to support the mission.

In 2013 we began working on Neighborhood Revitalization in the Parish Park neighborhood.  This work is now continued by the All About Adrian neighborhood coalition with support from Habitat.

In 2021, we expanded the ReStore, nearly doubling the store floor. In doing so, we also co-located our Affiliate Office and Construction Program at the same site to serve all our clients.
