It's all about value!

In farming, you need three things: efficiency, perseverance and a positive attitude. Those are the same qualities you need to succeed in home building.

Homes for Hope is Expanding to Montana and Virgina

Homes for Hope is a wonderful and generous non-profit organization dedicated to building homes for families across the United States. Many home builders and vendors come together to use their skills in an effort to fight against global poverty. Just under four thousand families were helped in Billings, Montana and thousands more will also be reached in Richmond, Virginia in May.

The homes at Josephine Crossing in Billings, Montana were built by McCall Homes.  More than doubling their goal, these homes are now sold out, helping just under four thousand families! This was the first Homes for Hope project in Montana, and I am very happy and excited for their success.

Breaking ground on May 5, many volunteers will begin construction on a new community in Richmond, Virginia. With the same goal as the community in Montana, home builder HHHunt believes this community will quickly sell and help thousands of people. A ground breaking ceremony will be held on May 5 with Jack Nulty, Executive Director for Homes for Hope, who will be sharing the organization’s message. I cannot wait to see this community impact the lives of thousands of people in Richmond.

A Home for Hope is a charity home that is built by different trade partners including subcontractors, suppliers and consultants on a largely pro-bono basis. Many of the builders donate as much as possible of the cost it takes to build a new Home for Hope. This helps maximize net proceeds that can be used to help fight poverty. Not only does this organization help fight poverty in the United States, but Homes for Hope also helps to fight poverty around the world with HOPE International.
