Plans for our 33rd year in repairing homes of low-income, elderly, and disabled homeowners in St. Mary's County are in full swing.

We are now accepting applications until December 1st for our next Neighbors helping Neighbors day on April 29, 2023.


Homes are chosen for Christmas in April repairs from applications received prior December 1st deadline. Volunteers serving on the House Selection Committee visit each applicant (during the months of October, November, and December); they interview each homeowner; inspect the home; ask for written proof of home ownership and income; and complete a report form. Then the entire committee discusses and prioritizes all applications and makes recommendations to the Christmas in April Advisory Board. A vote is taken by the Advisory Board in late December or early January to accept or reject the recommendations of the Committee.
