I have served on the Board of Home Builders Care Foundation since 2001. I have been very impressed by the ability of the organization to leverage the financial contributions and building expertise of its donor base to provide shelter for the disadvantaged members of our community. The Foundation is unique in that it provides through volunteer builder captains construction services that typically are beyond the reach of nonprofits or governmental agencies at a very low or no cost. The Foundation will partner with the nonprofit or governmental agency where appropriate to insure that the project benefits the ultimate clientele, whether that be a homeless shelter, transitional housing project, or permanent supportive housing. Since I have been on the Board, Home Builders Care Foundation has contibuted to the success of over 25 projects located throughout the Metropolitan Washington DC area.

The Great!

Homebuilder's Care Foundation has done exceptional work in the Washington region - building homeless shelters, restoring apartment buildings, group homes etc. The foundation brings together the best of the building industry - in terms of both generosity and expertise - to use our resources to help worthy orgainzations. HBCF performs a rigorous review of the organizations we help as well as a professinal evaluation of their building needs and plans. It is a great leveraging of time, money and talent to help the community

I've been on the Board for over 10 years and have participated in many projects which have aided homeless and other disadvantaged people. I personally worked on an extensive renovation of the Gospel Rescue Mission facilities in DC for homeless men. I also worked on the renovation of several group homes for the emotionally challenged in Maryland. Our organization can be strengthened by increased recognition from donors and grantors, particularly while the home building industry is working its way out of the present severe recession.

HBCF has aided hundreds of homeless and disadvantaged people by providing in-kind donations and funds raised from the home building industry. Most of these facilities would not have been completed without our assistance.

As the state of the home building industry improves, we would like to get more builders to serve as job captains, so we could do more projects each year.

Our efforts have assisted in a very positive way a number of organizations that serve the homeless in the DC Metro area. Many of the recipients of our services are smaller organizations that might not be able to afford renovations/improvements. It is gratifying that when new homebuilders around the country are struggling to survive (and many have not) that they still find the time, energy and funds to give back to those that provide services to the homeless. A recent project of great importance was the completion of a home for TASSC(Torture Abolition and Survivors Support Coalition International).
