When affordable housing is out of reach for so many families, it creates instability in our communities, weakens our economy, and even impacts our health and educational success.
Through affordable homeownership families can:
- Provide stability for their children
- Gain improved health, physical safety and security
- Increase educational and job prospects
- Engage in their communities
To address the need for decent shelter in our area, Habitat for Humanity of Carroll County works in many ways: building and renovating homes, repairing existing houses, advocating for better laws and systems, and more. We work with families to help them acquire the access, skills and financial education necessary for them to be successful homeowners. By partnering with us, families seize the opportunity and possibility that quality, affordable housing represents.
Through shelter, we empower.
Habitat for Humanity is best known for its home build construction. In this program, staff and volunteers work alongside qualified home buyers as they build their own home. When construction is complete, the new homeowner purchases their home through a commitment fee and a low-interest rate loan, making it affordable for their budget.
Habitat for Humanity of Carroll County builds homes throughout the county.
HHCC offers a Critical Home Repair Program. The purpose of this program is to create a safe, healthy, accessible, and affordable home for existing homeowners. The Critical Home Repair program is not meant to complete typical homeowner tasks (mowing the lawn on a regular basis, cleaning gutters, changing air filters, etc.) or make cosmetic repairs due to homeowner neglect.
Habitat for Humanity of Carroll County is proud to announce that our affiliate is now part of HFHI’s Veterans Build Initiative.
We are currently seeking applicants from veteran families in Carroll County for our Critical Home Repair Program. To be eligible, the homeowner must be a veteran or the widow of a veteran.
Women Build Club
Working alongside a Habitat client can offer you a great deal of perspective. You’ll understand the challenges lower-income households face, but also see all the things you have in common with the people you’re volunteering with. Nothing breaks down barriers faster than doing something meaningful, in partnership, with someone who has had a different life experience than you.
When you join our Women Build Club, your monthly donations support our mission, and you will receive great benefits and multiple opportunities to participate in the Habitat experience.
