What is Homes for HOPE?
In 2004, John and Tracy Houston started John Houston Homes (JHH) with a mission to reach people for Christ and give to the kingdom. Today, almost 20 years later, JHH is employee-owned by over 100 team members, is ranked among the top home builders in the United States, and builds hundreds of homes a year in four major market areas across 40+ communities.
Once Artem and his wife Alina began the pattern of missing their church service to tend to their successful wedding business, they realized they needed to make a change. “We switched to the restaurant business,” Artem says. “My wife loved [food] from an early age. She used to cook delicious meals with her grandmother. You can say that this is [an important part] of her life.” Little did they know that switching to the restaurant business would allow them to serve more than just good food to customers. During the challenges of war, they would provide people fleeing violence with meaningful employment and nourish their hearts with God’s love.
Recently, I had the privilege of celebrating the completion of Pahlisch Homes' inaugural Homes for HOPE project in beautiful Bend, Oregon. I was joined by staff, neighbors from the Highline South community, and over 75 trade partners. Dan Pahlisch, President of Pahlisch Homes, opened the event with a prayer and invited guests to enjoy artisanal pizza and ice cream from local food trucks. It was a time to celebrate the thousands of lives that will be impacted by Pahlisch's donation, as well as a time of fellowship among colleagues who had just constructed an award-winning home.
