Pride Build- Montgomery County

What is Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County, Maryland Pride Build 2011?

Pride Build embraces diversity by bringing together the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and friends to rehabilitate a distressed home in our community for a deserving low-income family. Working alongside Habitat volunteers and partner families, Pride Build will raise the money needed to rehabilitate the home, and assist with the construction in order to make it simple, decent and energy efficient.

Who Will Pride Build Help?

Habitat homeowners are selected by the Family Selection Committee based on income, housing need, willingness to partner and complete ‘sweat equity’ hours, residency in Montgomery County and ability to pay.  We encourage and support a program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, sex, marital status, physical or mental disability, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, presence of children, source of income, sexual orientation, age and family responsibilities.

When we have reached our fundraising goal and construction is completed on the home, Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County will sell the house to the selected homeowner at below market rates, and with a 30 year, no interest mortgage. The homeowner will make affordable monthly mortgage payments and will gain equity in the home each year.

How can you get involved and Donate to Pride Builld 2011?

Anyone and everyone can help out with Pride Build!  Once we begin construction we will be looking for volunteers from the LGBT community to work with us. 

If you would like to  donate, please make your donation through this page.  If you would like to send in a check send it to 9110 Gaither Road, Gaithersburg, MD 20877 and make it out to Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County, MD.  Please indicate that your gift is for Pride Build.
