Partner Spotlight: Keystone Custom Homes 2023 Trade Partner Celebration
Earlier this month Keystone Custom Homes held a trade appreciation event to celebrate the resilience, perseverance, excellence, and generosity of their trade partners and suppliers over the past five years. Homes for HOPE had the privilege of attending as well and thanking those in attendance for their sacrificial support of our mission. Utilizing Keystone’s unique Virtual Homes for HOPE Project model, they have generated donations that keep increasing year over year enabling us to serve an ever-growing number of talented entrepreneurs who are living in poverty around the world!
Our founder, Terry Penn, has been building since 1983. It was never his goal to be the biggest, only the best. Serving our customers, the home buyers, has always been a top priority for Terry, and that commitment has never nor will ever waver. Today that is clearly evident as a big portion of our homes built come from referrals. In one family alone we have built two homes for them, one for their mother and one for their best friend. We can’t wait until their two children become old enough so we can start the building process with them. Our history really started even before 1983 as Herbert Penn, Terry’s father, helped pave the way with his many years of construction experience. Herbert’s philosophy was do it right, and always do the right thing. Herbert left this earth on October 16, 2006 at the age of 86. Up until that time he continued to come to the office daily. His presence will always be missed, but his legacy of doing right will always live on.
