Celebrating 25 Years
Twenty-five years as a Habitat for Humanity affiliate is a tremendous accomplishment. The folks that made up Habitat for Humanity’s founding team had dreams and visions of building homes for people in need of a stable environment to raise families. They believed a ‘hand up, not a hand out’ could help local residents purchase their own home and find stability. 25 years later, we have seen dozens of Habitat homeowners find strength, stability and self-reliance through our programs. This is a tremendous accomplishment for each of them and for our founding team.
A message from Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International to the Habitat Frederick community in celebration of this anniversary:
You made it possible for Habitat to reach our 25th Anniversary. If you have made a donation, volunteered, referred an applicant or partnered with Habitat Frederick in any way, thank you! Thank you for being part of our legacy.
As we celebrate our history and this anniversary, we also want to build into the future. We are under construction on our next home build with Rebecca Lookingbill and we have applications from 25 homeowners in need of home repair services that we’ll work with this year (and more coming!). Beyond that, plans are underway for a future home build and exciting new multi-unit projects so more local residents can experience home ownership.
Over 25 years, our organization has grown and changed multiple times in order to meet the needs of local residents in need of affordable home ownership. The one thing that will never change is the need for you to be a part of the Habitat for Humanity experience. We invite you to be part of this 25th Anniversary Celebration and change the lives of local residents. Here’s how you can help:
