At Dan Ryan Builders, we are passionate about people and home ownership and we were delighted to be able to support the great cause that is Habitat for Humanity through financial donation of $10,000. The donation was in support of Habitat for Humanity of Carroll County- an independent affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International.
The organization built its last home in 2008, and before that it hadn’t built a home since 2004. Bryan Lyburn, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Carroll County, hopes the organization can become more active in the community.
In an interview with The Advocate, Lyburn stated “It would be my goal to grow our organization’s capacity, so that we can make an impact in the housing needs of county residents, and so we can have more folks that work here and that spend time here in the county who can also afford to live here in the county,”
Most of the organization’s volunteers, who build and repair the houses, are from Carroll County, too, he said. It generally takes hundreds of volunteers to complete a new construction project from the ground up. Lyburn said Habitat for Humanity has opportunities for both long-term and short-term volunteers.
