We’re Having A Party!

We are having a party!

What better way to acknowledge 25 years of helping people find affordable housing than to celebrate and reflect. Save the date of Thursday, October 27, 2016. IHA and our gracious chair, Ms. Karlys Kline, invite you to a fun couple hours of celebrating “Past, Present and Future” while recognizing Dan Ryan of Dan Ryan Builders for his many contributions and great support over the years.

An exciting addition to our celebration is the featured art work by acclaimed artist, Yemi. Recognizing a critical shortage of affordable housing, Yemi approached IHA about a collaborative effort to raise money. He is committed to assisting IHA make a difference by providing a secure, stable living environment for seniors, individuals, and families through rental and homeownership opportunities. Known as “The Pillars of Frederick,” 40 portraits of renowned Fredericktonians have graced McCutcheon’s factory for the past 5 years. For the first time, these portraits will be released for individual purchase and sized for display for home or work. These limited edition framed prints will be signed and numbered by Yemi and “The Pillars of Frederick” will become “The Pillars of Affordable Housing” as Yemi and IHA join forces for a greater good!

A celebration such as this would not be possible if not for the help of our sponsors. Early support has come from our Presenting Sponsor, Dan Ryan Builders; Gold Sponsors, PIRHL, Conifer Realty, and Natelli Communities, LP; Silver Sponsors, Elm Street Development, Frederick County Bank, and Sandy Spring Bank and Bronze Sponsor, Miller & Smith. We are so grateful for their endorsement of the work we do. We look forward to the assistance of others in the community as well.

With groundbreakings and ribbon cuttings in our near future, along with a nationally recognized Purchase Repair Homeownership Program and Housing Matters Program, there is much to celebrate. Affordable housing has been and continues to be a high priority need. IHA prides itself on being a leader in this area and we look forward to celebrating with the community!
