21 delegates from China’s State Council Office of Poverty Alleviation and Development, visited Homecrest House on Friday, September 21st.
They came to gain more information about services and fundraising, about how Homecrest is subsidized by HUD/financial funding, partnerships with health care organizations, how Homecrest cares for our seniors, sustainability practices, and also about the personal care services of the Edwards Building.
Then on September 25th, we welcomed Mary Beth Tung, the Director of the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) along with staff members, and Lt. Governor Boyd K. Rutherford. Homecrest was awarded a $190,000 MEA Clean Energy Communities Low-to-Moderate Income Grant. This grant was used to upgrade an old air conditioning chiller. The new chiller will keep our residents cool through high heat conditions and will lower the amount of mechanical issues.
