In a spirit of collaboration and fellowship, Habitat for Humanity Metro Maryland works with individuals, institutions, faith organizations, businesses, and the Habitat families themselves to build simple, decent, energy efficient, and affordable housing for those living in substandard conditions in our community.
A community in which everyone has a decent place to live.
While Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties are part of the most affluent, fastest growing communities in the nation, thousands of its residents are living in poverty. Housing costs have sky-rocked, while income growth in many jobs has remained the same – making the dream of homeownership almost impossible for low-income families.
However, Habitat’s unique homeownership model provides a solution to this problem by offering low-income families the opportunity to purchase their own simple, decent, affordable home. Our goal is to end the cycle of poverty, instill a “can-do” attitude and show families that with the right tools, they can have the confidence to maintain their own stable community.
To build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.
HFHMM supports the notion that good, stable housing matters for neighborhoods. Better quality of living leads to stronger citizens and families. Habitat for Humanity is about changing lives, one home at a time. Watch us put our mission into action.
