Frederick Rescue Mission Repaving Project

In January of 2023, the Frederick Rescue Mission completed the repaving of its parking lot. This was a critical need for the organization as its parking lot connects its 1,100 volunteers and over 7,000 clients to its vital services, such as food distribution.

Years of wear and tear had left the concrete lot crumbling and falling apart. Holes in the concrete created hazardous situations for volunteers, who often injured themselves. In addition, the old lot had significant water drainage problems, which caused runoff to flood into a nearby business during heavy storms. Fixing these issues was of utmost importance to the Frederick Rescue Mission, and local leaders from the Frederick building industry recognized this need.

Upon hearing of this need, Danielle Adams mobilized the Builders Association of Frederick County. These leaders in the building industry came together to provide below-market-rate services and supplies to complete this project. This collaboration of Frederick County builders was remarkable and inspiring.

The Ausherman Family Foundation was privileged to provide a grant to match the Builders Association. Uplifting this project will be a transformative change for the organization and the community.
