Local Build: The Arc of Howard County

DreamBuilders and The ARC of Howard County share a long-standing partnership to improve homes for developmentally and cognitively challenged individuals. Together, they foster community acceptance and inclusion for ARC clients.

On November 12 & 13, from 8:30am-4:00pm we will be renovating a group home in Columbia by replacing the kitchen floor and upgrading a damaged doorway to make it more appropriate and durable for wheelchair use. We need 10 volunteers each day to efficiently complete the project, so come join in! This project is open to youth seventh grade and older and adults. Lunch will be provided both days, and there is no cost to those volunteering. Come be part of this impactful weekend as we work together to enhance the lives and living conditions of our ARC neighbors! To sign up, use the link below:
