A March 3 explosion and fire devastated the Friendly Garden Apartments on Lyttonsville Road in Silver Spring, causing serious injuries, displacing more than 150 residents, and destroying multiple apartments. Many evacuated carrying very little or nothing. While Friendly Garden Apartments is not one of MHP’s properties, we maintain close ties with the community through the many affordable housing properties we have developed in Montgomery County, our preschool and after-school homework clubs, and our neighborhood development work.
You can donate to provide relief to these families as they stabilize and try to move forward.  Funds are needed for transportation, clothing, supplies for children, and other essentials.
MHP is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our tax ID is 52-1631939. Your donation to the Lyttonsville Fire Fund is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

100% of the donated funds will go to families impacted by the fire. Thank you!
