Established in Frederick in 1993, Habitat for Humanity of Frederick County, operates under the mission “seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.” This mission drives Habitat’s programs, all of which help hardworking people across Frederick County achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance of affordable home ownership.
Our programs include new home construction, where qualified applicants help build and then purchase their own home at an affordable rate. Our Land Trust program renovates run down houses into market ready homes, then sells the home to qualifying home buyers minus the the land, creating a unique, award-winning, avenue to offer more affordable housing options in our county. For current home owners, our home repair programs ensure they can continue to live safely and decently in their own home.
In line with our “hand up, not a hand out” philosophy, we partner with individuals and families who work side-by-side with volunteers performing “sweat equity” work to take an active role in making their dream of home ownership a reality.
Concerned and motivated people come together to make Habitat homes a reality in Frederick by raising funds and volunteering in a multitude of ways. Together we make the dream of owning a home a reality for more people in Frederick. The Blue Crabs and Blue Prints event will be an opportunity to share our work and mission with more people, while raising crucial funds to expand all of our programs for the people of Frederick County.
