Habitat Happenings Winter 2023

We’d like to thank our staff, volunteers, donors, and shoppers for their outstanding efforts this past year. Thanks to you, we had a great 2022 and are on track for an even better 2023!
We are finishing up the Sullivan Avenue build for the Staymates family and will have the Dedication Celebration in April. Then we turn our attention to our duplex build in Taneytown. We will kick off this project with a Groundbreaking Ceremony. Interested in a Team Building Day? Learn more about becoming a Build Sponsor here!
