Home Builders Care Presents Community Service Awards HBCF recently presented its 2014 Community Service Awards at MBIA’s Installation Dinner Meeting. This year’s Community Builder Award was presented to Mark Bennett, VicePresident of Development for Greenebaum Enterprises. Mark has over 25 years of experience and has been active in the Association for well over 20 years having always stepped up to assist, and not always for the easy volunteer jobs. Most recently, he stepped up to assist for possibly one of the biggest tasks in the Association’s foundation history to lead the completion of the Maryland Center for Housing in Maple Lawn. Over the past two years, Mark has served as CoPresident of the Building Industries Foundation. In
that capacity, Mark has donated countless hours to assist with the construction of the new building, which is owned by the Foundation and is the new MBIA headquarters. It could not have been done without his help. From the inception of the project he has played an integral part - from getting the land donated by Greenebaum to serving as an important resource throughout the process to actually taking over the full day-to-day project management of the building. On June 16, 2015, the grand opening celebration of the building took place largely thanks to his
leadership. The Tom Sawyer Award was presented to Efficient Home LLC for their leadership on the substantial renovation project at the Friendship Place Welcome Center and Clinic in Washington DC. The Welcome Center is a place where the homeless can escape from the streets. More about the extensive project can be found in our Ribbon Cutting story page 2.
The Directors Award, was presented to Jack Orrick of Linowes and Blocher LLP, a business and real estate law firm in Bethesda where he is a Partner and Chair of the firm’s Business (Continued on page 3)

On Thursday, December 11, 2014, Friendship Place held its annual Holiday Open House. This year, the event doubled as a ribbon cutting ceremony for the newly renovated Friendship Place Welcome Center. The renovation would not have been possible without the work of Home Builders Care Foundation’s HomeAid Washington DC chapter, Case Design, Efficient Home LLC and the Masco Corporation Foundation.
