At the Carroll Nonprofit Center, we take pride in the incredible organizations we host and the transformative work they undertake within our community. Today, we’re thrilled to shine a spotlight on one of our tenants, Habitat for Humanity of Carroll County, and their upcoming event, Hammer & Ales.

Now in its 5th year, Hammer & Ales is Habitat for Humanity’s signature fundraiser, with 100% of the proceeds directly supporting their Habitat Homebuilding Program. This program is at the heart of their mission, providing affordable housing solutions that empower families and uplift our entire community.

The impact of a stable and affordable home cannot be overstated. It fosters well-being, reduces stress, and creates a nurturing environment for families to thrive. Affordable housing enables individuals to focus on other essential aspects of life without having to make difficult trade-offs between necessities like rent, healthcare, food, or transportation.

As Habitat for Humanity eloquently puts it, “A decent and affordable home offers new opportunities, boosting confidence and self-reliance.” By partnering with families and providing access to skills, financial education, and affordable mortgages or small loans, Habitat empowers them to embrace the transformative opportunities that come with secure housing.

The Hammer & Ales event promises to be a memorable evening filled with camaraderie, delicious beverages, and a shared commitment to creating a more equitable and thriving community. We encourage everyone – individuals, families, businesses, clubs, and groups alike – to consider joining as a sponsor or purchasing individual tickets.

Together, we can raise a glass (and a hammer) in support of Habitat for Humanity’s vital work, building strength, stability, self-reliance, and shelter for those in need. Let’s make this year’s Hammer & Ales a resounding success and continue to uplift our community, one home at a time.

To become a sponsor, contact Stephanie Averett at or visit the event website by September 25th. Individual tickets can be purchased here.

Join us in celebrating the remarkable efforts of Habitat for Humanity and their unwavering dedication to creating a world where everyone has a decent place to call home!
