To help strengthen the Lancaster County community by giving people the tools and inspiration to meet their housing and financial challenges and by revitalizing our surroundings.
Tabor will help build a strong and united community in which all people have the opportunity to live in decent affordable housing and be financially self-sufficient. Tabor will also help to make the part of the city in which it is located a desirable place to work and live.
Tabor was established in 1968 by members of the Mennonite Community in Lancaster to help low-income families find housing and manage their finances. They were led by the scriptural call to demonstrate their concern for others through action and to work to eliminate the forces that divide us as a community. Since then, Tabor has developed a wide array of services that help people find solutions to their housing and financial challenges. The organization has also initiated community revitalization projects in the part of Lancaster City where its offices are located.
Tabor became a HUD approved Housing Counseling Agency in 1968 and a member of the National Foundation for Credit Counseling in 1988. It has been accredited by the Council on Accreditation since 1998.
Tabor has been recognized for excellence in its programs and service to clients and the Lancaster community by the National Foundation for Credit Counseling, the National Alliance to End Homelessness, Central Penn Business Journal, the Lancaster County Board of Commissioners and Planning Commission, and the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency.
