Because every construction project has its own challenges, this model is made to be adaptable.

Building for the Homeless Shelter in Collaboration with Nonprofit Community Partners

Home Builders Care Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides cost-effective solutions to other non-profits with shelter-related construction needs.  We do not directly assist individuals.

We collaborate with other community groups (non-profits and/or local government agencies) to build and renovate community-based shelters and supportive housing facilities that are owned by agencies. (Agencies with long-term leases may also be considered on a case by case basis.)

Potential new projects are evaluated regularly by the HBCF Board of Directors and its Project Committee. Organizations with the best chances of being selected as an HBCF project partner:

  1. have solid community support for their project,
  2. are in compliance with local zoning, registration, and licensing requirements,
  3. offer supportive services to help clients achieve and maintain stability, plus have operational funding for program services to continue, and
  4. have the capability to potentially raise matching funding – if needed - to ensure completion of the project.

Because we have access to the professional resources of the Maryland Building Industry, HBCF is able to provide our client organizations with high quality labor, materials and construction expertise that would otherwise cost them significantly more, both in terms of time spent to seek out and hire professionals as well as money in construction.

With each project, HBCF routinely saves our non-profit partners thousands of dollars in the process, while also extending our own resources to improve their economic well-being by providing them and their clients with a more valuable and useful property. We help make projects feasible.

Ultimately, our work empowers agencies to focus resources on direct client services that lead to stability.
