What we aim to solve New!

In Frederick County, 26% of our population is employed and working hard, and yet, struggles to make ends meet (2016 ALICE Report). For this great segment of our workforce the dream of home-ownership is out of reach due to the high cost of housing in our County. However, by partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Frederick County, these individuals and families can achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance of affordable home ownership.

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

We aim to increase the number of projects completed in each of our programs. We aim to build two new housing units in 2018, to complete renovation on two housing units through the Land Trust in 2018 and to complete repairs to 25 housing units in 2018.

The organization has increased volunteer and personnel in recent years in order to accommodate heavier construction schedules and is working to implement streamlined procedures to be able to increase the number of projects completed each year so that more people can achieve affordable home ownership.

The Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Frederick, MD has shown steady income growth over the last 2 years. This income funds operational expenses of the organization, making it possible to hire additional staff and resources needed to accomplish our goals.

Habitat for Humanity of Frederick has also utilized volunteer resources, such as Volunteer Crew Leaders, an AmeriCorps Service Member and a growing construction committee, to assist staff in increasing construction volume.

Additionally, when projects are completed and sold, at an affordable rate, to new homeowners, proceeds from the sales fund future projects. Therefore, when more projects are completed, coupled with fundraising efforts, there are more funds for additional projects in the future.

By tracking the number of construction projects completed each year.

In 2017 Habitat completed 1 new home build in Brunswick, MD and 2 renovations through the Frederick County Affordable Housing Land Trust, both within Frederick City. This means that 3 families were able to purchase their own home for the first time. Additionally, 18 home repairs were completed for current home owners. In total, 2017 was the most productive year in organizational history. Plans are to continue to build on this growth with additional housing units in 2018 and working towards multi-unit builds in the future so as to serve more families in Frederick County.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
