It’s the end of the year, and it has certainly been a challenging one! Despite the roadblocks that another year of Covid threw at us, we were able to expand our mission. Thank you for your steadfast support!
As we bring 2021 to a close, we look back with a great sense of accomplishment. We opened our first ReStore and restarted our Critical Home Repair Program. We look forward to placing two families in their own homes by the holidays next year and keeping many others safe in their existing homes.
I’m looking forward to 2022 being a productive year for us, but we need you in our corner. Please consider Habitat for Humanity of Carroll County when making your year end contribution decisions. We have great meaningful work to do, and we would love for you to be a part of it.
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and may God Bless all of you!

In March, with great anticipation and incredible support by a loving community, we opened Carroll County’s first ReStore.
The ReStore continues to receive fantastic donations of furniture, appliances, building material and housewares, and customers purchase them for their own use, completing the reduce-reuse-recycle theme of the ReStore. A wonderful way for the donor and purchaser to work together to support our mission!
In early 2021 the pandemic was in full swing, and it was not a safe environment to work on a build. Lumber prices begun to rise, and all signs indicated that waiting was the right thing to do. Little did we know that inflation would continue to rise. In May we updated bids and found the cost of our duplex has risen by 50%. So, we postponed our build once more, our goal is to break ground in 2022.
In October we reopened our Critical Home Repair Program. This program works to serve Carroll’s financially challenged families that need home repairs related to safety and security. We look forward to this program growing and hope for it to be a useful service, especially for our senior and veteran community.
Will you make a holiday gift of $50 today so that families in Carroll County can build strength and stability through shelter this holiday season? Every dollar makes a difference.
