Orioles staff and players work on Ward Street in Pigtown, Baltimore.

Orioles at Ward St

After clearing the debris and breaking ground, we called on The Baltimore Orioles to take a break from the chaos of Baseball season and take a swing at construction! With the support of The Orange & Black Gives Back employee volunteer program and The Orioles Wives, The O’s swapped their helmets for hardhats and swung into action on the 1100 block of Ward.

New homebuyer Francine cuts the ribbon on 1156 Ward Street

Habitat Homebuyer


As Francine cut the ribbon to cheers from friends, Habitat staff, supporters, and even a group of high school volunteer from out of state, she marked the start of a homeownership journey long in the making. The youngest of nine, Francine grew up in Baltimore and experienced housing instability from an early age. Now, after earning degrees at BCCC and University of Baltimore, she works as an addiction counselor, and is vocal about her desire to be a committed homeowner and give back.

New Technologies

Our First ICF Home

Built in partnership with the National Ready Mix Concrete Association’s (NRMCA) “Build With Strength” coalition, this home was Habitat Chesapeake’s first home built with ICFs, or insulating concrete forms, a kind of sustainable and strong building technology. Alongside representatives from BuildBlocks ICFs and the ICF Manufacturers Association (ICFMA), as well as local supporters, this dedication also celebrated the very first ICF home in Baltimore County. 

It was a great sense of joy just to see everybody on the block, because all of our homes got dedicated at the same time. Just seeing all the families together celebrating was an amazing feeling. It just reminded me that it wasn’t just about me at that moment – it was the beginning of something great for the entire block.” 


Habitat Homebuyer

“It’s great to say that it’s your own. Wow, I accomplished this. I didn’t know that I could do it on my own. I didn’t know that I was able. Habitat has shown me that I can.”
