The Mortgage is Burned

On November 30 2017, the HBCF board officially celebrated the end of its Make It Burn campaign. The naming rights on all upstairs offices have been sold. The final list of inaugural donors to be listed on signage in our lobby is complete.  Click to view the complete list of Top Level Maryland Center for Housing Donors.
Thank you to Howard Perlow and Roger Lebbin for leading our 2017 mortgage burning campaign and thank you to everyone who has donated to the Maryland Center for Housing over the past few years. Your investment in the mission of our foundation and association is commendable. We can’t thank you enough.
15th Annual Holiday Toy Drive Helps Homeless Children at Sarah’s House
Thank you to our industry friends who helped spread some joy this past holiday season to families in need. Your generous donations of toys that were collected at MBIA events in December and dropped off at the Maryland Center for Housing were given to children at Sarah’s House in Fort Meade Maryland. Just before Christmas, the MBIA staff delivered close to 30 large sacks of gifts – enough to six five SUVs. Wonderful!

Sarah’s House is a supportive housing program offering emergency shelter and project-based supportive housing with an array of other services for families experiencing homelessness in Anne Arundel County.
HBCF Installs New President for 2018
Mr. Michael Karns, Vice-President of Purchasing, Design and Research at WinchesterHomes recently took office as HBCF’s President and he is ready to lead the Foundation into another productive year of giving back to the community through charitable construction. Mike is a University of Maryland graduate and has been active on the HBCF board since 2012. Come meet him at BuilderMart!

FIL Council to Help with UCF House Project in Baltimore
The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults is building “a home away from home for young adult cancer patients and their families” and MBIA’s Future IndustryLeaders (FIL) Council is doing what it can to help.  In December, FIL members Adam Van Bavel with O’Neil Interactive and Jeff Barba of Emerald Builders joined with HBCF to tour the site and learn more about UCF’s project needs. 
The future UCF House, located near Johns Hopkins Medical Campus and Hospital, will provide a supportive housing community for young adults while they are undergoing treatment. The project – a renovation of 6 row homes into a multi-dimensional facility with 9 family suites – is already underway. Stay tuned for updates in 2018.
