Home Builders Care Foundation, Inc.
November 16, 2010

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.
