Another charity project almost complete! 

New whole house upgraded flooring was installed this week for Housing Unlimited, Inc. (HUI), a nonprofit providing affordable, independent housing for people in mental health recovery in Montgomery County Maryland. The residents of the home are getting excited about their renovated home!

A big thank you to Maryland Building Industry Association member Steve Rados at Friends and Family Flooring for his help!  The selected products are beautiful and durable enough to stand up to wear and tear for years to come. 

This project marks about the 8th time over the past eighteen (18) years that the Home Builders Care Foundation has partnered with Housing Unlimited on a supportive housing project.  HUI’s first house was acquired in 1994. Today, they house about 192 persons in recovery in over 70 homes!  #homebuilderscare
