Homes for Hope is pleased to announce that long-time partner and supporter, Grand Homes, recently broke ground on their sixth Home for Hope in Wylie Texas this past week. Even with the rain, spirits were high and the crowd was dynamic as Grand’s employees and partners gathered to celebrate their joint commitment to build locally to fight poverty globally.
Over time, Grand has begun to make the Home for Hope process their own, and their Home for Hope groundbreakings always include something unique – planting a tree of life.
The tree itself is planted as a sapling, and once the celebration ends, the home is sold, and years go by, the tree will grow into a large, towering oak tree – providing shade, life, and vibrancy for the family that lives there. Throughout the years, it will stand as a tribute to the commitment made here by Grand Homes and their partners.
What a fitting picture for a Home for Hope. The proceeds from this home will go to provide discipleship, savings, training, and small loans for thousands of entrepreneurs in 17 developing countries around the world. With access to Chris-centered Microenterprise Development, it is our hope that each one of these families this home touches will be able to grow their business over time – just like that tree – and ultimately realize their potential as providers for their families, givers in their communities, and followers of Christ.
