Patuxent Habitat for Humanity joins global observance of World Habitat Day
(Due to the weather, Patuxent Habitat will observe on October 8th)
In commemoration of World Habitat Day, Patuxent Habitat for Humanity will host a Veterans’ Critical Home Repair to help bring attention to the need for adequate housing in St. Mary’s and Calvert counties. The veteran we are helping is a disabled Army Sergeant; she lives with her husband, four children and dog in a home that requires major repairs to make it safe. She recently completed school to become a social worker, and hopes to become an advocate for veterans. We will be doing a major deck repair, gutter repair and other small jobs. We are also working on a GAF grant so we can repair her roof as well at a later date.
World Habitat Day is observed every year on the first Monday of October throughout the world. It was officially designated by the United Nations and first celebrated in 1986. The purpose of the day is to reflect on the state of our cities and towns and the basic human right to adequate shelter.

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.
