On Friday, October 15, 2020, Harkins attended the groundbreaking of a home in the North Baltimore neighborhood of Woodbourne-McCabe that will be built for long-time community partner Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake.
Harkins President & CEO Gary Garofalo and Project Manager Walt Whitlow were joined by Habitat Chesapeake CEO Mike Posko and staff, community leaders, and the soon to be homeowners for this ceremonial event.
Located at 504 McCabe Avenue in the Greater Govans community, the single-family home will include three-bedrooms, two bathrooms, and is on track to be completed in the Spring of 2021. The project launch represents Habitat Chesapeake’s dedication to the neighborhood, which began in 2012 with its commitment to renovating a projected 21 homes by 2020. The work in Woodbourne-McCabe will be one of three areas of emphasis in the coming years. Other areas of focus include up to 16 homes in the East Baltimore neighborhood of Milton-Montford, Belair-Edison, and 27 new homes in homes in Orchard Ridge, located in Northeast Baltimore.
