The Mortgage is Burned
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.
