About Habitat for Humanity of Carroll County
Habitat for Humanity of Carroll County is part of a global, nonprofit housing organization operated on Christian principles that seeks to put God’s love into action by building homes, communities and hope. Habitat for Humanity has a strong history in Carroll County, MD. Habitat is the only nonprofit focused on the creation and preservation of affordable homes in Carroll County. Over the past 10 years, we have built and/or rehabilitated nine homes. To those nine families, including the 21 children in those households, we have made a profound impact on their current and future well-being.
Our Current Projects
In the summer of 2019, we will dedicate our 10th home and hand over the keys to our newest homeowners at 166 S. Court St. There is no prouder moment than when a family that has struggled and worked hard for years is finally able to realize the American Dream of Homeownership and all that it implies, including a much brighter future for their children.
We are also very much looking forward to the promise of self-sufficiency for our agency through the opening of our ReStore. Currently we are raising money and hope to open the doors in July 2020. Our store will benefit the community in many ways. We can save hundreds of tons of household and construction waste from our local landfill. We will provide buying opportunities for our low income population, and we will have the ability to utilize many eager volunteers. However, the biggest benefit will be the joy of increasing our capacity to build homes for low income families, who have no hope of home ownership except through the pathway created by Habitat for Humanity of Carroll County.
