News Release, Habitat for Humanity

Friday June 14th, the birthday of the United States Army and Flag Day seemed to be fitting for Patuxent Habitat for Humanity Veteran Critical Repair program in partnership with Christmas in April, Calvert County, Exelon Militaries Actively Connected (EMAC) and several other volunteers to build a ramp for the Army veteran John Smith and his wife in Great Mills, MD. Mr. & Mrs. Smiths’ need was brought to our attention from the local chapter of the Disabled American Veterans Organization (D.A.V.).

We are always in need of volunteers from professional (plumbers, roofers, carpenters etc.)  to those who just want to help someone. Patuxent Habitat for Humanity believes: Everyone especially our veterans deserve a decent place to live, with the dignity they have earned by serving us!

The Patuxent Habitat for Humanity Veteran Critical Repair Program is designed to repair homes for military veterans and their families. The program will assist with repairs identified in Habitat’s Critical Home Repair guidelines that may vary from roof repair and structural wall repairs to installing wheel chair ramps and remodeling bathrooms to be easily used by veterans with disabilities. If you would like to donate or volunteer for veteran programs please call Laurie at 301-863-6227×16 or email  for more information.
