Home Builders Care Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides cost-effective solutions to other non-profits with shelter-related construction needs.
Fundamentally, the charitable efforts and funds of Home Builders Care are focused exclusively on projects and project-related costs.
We collaborate with established community organizations (such as other non-profits and/or local government agencies) to build and renovate community-based shelters and supportive housing facilities that are owned by these organizations in our service area. We do not directly assist individuals nor do we provide direct housing placements.
Our core activities bring together two key stakeholder groups in our communities - professional homebuilders and nonprofits organizations that help support the homeless and others at risk. As builders, we do what we do best and they, as social service providers, do what they do best.

Our Turn Key Program for Smaller Projects
The Turn Key Project Grant Program is designed to assist 501(c)(3) Maryland and DC-based nonprofits with smaller scale construction needs, $5,000 and under, such as simple maintenance or repair projects that can be completed quickly with one or few trades.
During the challenging times of COVID-19 we are open to expanding our Turn-Key Project Program to include grants that help keep housing facilities operational and shelter residents safe. Our funds can now possibly be used to cover other operational items such as extra cleaning, additional needed supplies, household essentials, a looming utility bill and other critical needs. Please let us know how we may be able to help you maintain your program.
As with all HBCF programs, eligible projects must be shelter-focused, serve vulnerable populations, and have local community support.
Turn Key Project Funding is limited each calendar year and our goal is to commit to projects in a timely manner. Our Board of Directors expects to review your application within 30 days of its receipt. If approved, funds are available to be distributed once a project is ready to begin.
If your organization has larger, more complex project needs, please do not apply for TurnKey. Instead utilize the general inquiry form on this page or contact our office directly for the appropriate application process.
