Our Story

Habitat for Humanity’s vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live and the mission is ‘seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.’ Established in Frederick in 1993 as an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, Habitat Frederick works to help local residents in need achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance that comes with affordable home ownership. In line with our “hand up, not hand out” philosophy, we partner with hardworking Frederick County residents who cannot qualify for a conventional mortgage, and have no other way to own a home of their own. Our partner families work side-by-side with volunteers from the community to build, renovate or repair their homes in a way that is affordable for their budget.
