By Elizabeth Bowers, Director of Development and Communications at Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County

As the Thanksgiving season grows ever closer I am reminded of all the things I am thankful for.  I have wonderful friends and family.  I have a safe and stable place to live. Unfortunately, many of the families we serve at Habitat don’t have stable homes.  They may be renting or sleeping on someone’s couch until they get their own place.  Or they may own their own home, but cannot afford to maintain it when their furnace breaks or pipes burst. 

Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County is here to serve residents of Montgomery through homeownership, critical home repairs, financial counseling and life skills class, and neighborhood revitalization. We need your help to provide theses programs, to build hope, and to transform lives.

The Top 5 Ways You can Support Habitat

4)    Donate Items to the Restore

You can do more than shop at the Restore you can also donate items.

Donations of new and gently-used items, such as home improvement materials, furniture and large appliances, to ReStore help us further our mission through their resale to the public at discounted prices. 100% of ReStore proceeds fund our programs to end substandard housing. To learn more about donating to ReStore, go to our ReStore Donation page.

5)    Become a regular volunteer

HFHMC brings together individuals and groups from congregations, corporations, educational institutions, and the community to help us eliminate substandard housing.

Our home construction, rehabs and repairs are made possible through the labor of our dedicated volunteers working side by side with our homeowner families. We give volunteers an opportunity to not only make a difference with a day’s work, but also make a connection with a family moving towards stability and homeownership. We have plenty of opportunities that match your skill sets.
