It’s Help the Homeless Time!
For 12 years running, the Home Builders Care Foundation has been selected as a beneficiary of Fannie Mae’s Help the Homeless Program. The 2012 program is here!
This year, due to a number of reasons, there is no centralized walk on the National Mall. Instead, its smaller community walks. In total, the Home Builders Care Foundation needs to register 250 “walkers” to Help the Homeless in 2012. We are on our way, but need your help to reach our goal…
How can you help? By NOT ATTENDING an event this summer. Instead, please join our Virtual Walk!
It’s easy to participate. Simply go to http://www.hthwalks.org/goto/HBCFand register yourself and a friend as a virtual walker. Just $30/$20/$35 for a great cause – and you’ve helped build for our neighbors in need. For more info, contact Patti Kane. 301-445-5410. firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Home Builders Care Foundation (HBCF) was honored at Housing Unlimited Inc.’s (HUI) 2012 Welcome Home Celebration event on May 22. Follow this link to view photos from the HUI Welcome Home Celebration 2012 event.
The HUI honor award recognized HBCF’s long-standing support and in-kind contributions to HUI on a number of renovation projects at their many homes across Montgomery County.
HUI is one of HBCF’s fabulous partner nonprofit organizations. Headquartered in Silver Spring, HUI provides independent supportive housing for people with psychiatric disabilities. Currently, HUI owns and manages 48 homes serving 140 individuals. With over 300 people on their waiting list for housing, HUI is planning to grow. The organization recently announced it will be purchasing its 50th home, an MPDU in North Bethesda, from Michael Harris Homes.
