Housing that Works

We are proud to share that our work together continues to have a positive effect in Baltimore City and County. Due to our dedicated staff, partners and donors, we are equipped to do great things in the community and, be recognized for our work .
2019 Hand Housing Achievement Award

The 2019 HAND Annual Meeting and Award Luncheon was in June and Restoration Gardens 2 received the award for Best Small Affordable Housing Project . Our entire development team ( French Development , Southway Builders and Quinn Evans Architects ) is thrilled to have received this recognition from our peers in the industry.

Eradicating Homelessness

In June, Governor Larry Hogan announced that the State of Maryland experienced a 9.7% decrease in homelessness statewide. As a recipient of the State's Project CORE funds (among other funding sources) we are proud of our work contributing to the eradication of homelessness in the state.

Read the entire press release to learn about Maryland's efforts to end homelessness.
