NEWS & UPDATES
Keystone Custom Homes’ newly acquired division in North Carolina (formerly Evans Coghill Homes) launched their first Homes for HOPE project on a beautiful spring day in Charlotte, North Carolina. Trade partners, suppliers, and service providers gathered in a gorgeous model home with the subtle sound of saws and hammers in the background as homes are going up quickly in the popular, developing community. After a time of connecting around a meal, division president Alan Banks along with HOPE International’s founder, Jeff Rutt and others shared the vision of leveraging the impact of the building industry to invest in the dreams of underserved families around the world.
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!
Homes for Hope board member and founder, Jeff Rutt recently appeared on ABC27’s lifestyle program “Good Day PA,” where he spoke about building locally to fight poverty globally.
BUILDING “Virtual” HOMES FOR HOPE
No builder has more experience at building Homes for HOPE than our longstanding partner and founding builder, Keystone Custom Homes. From the first Home for HOPE ever built in 1998, to the 2+ homes they build with us each and every year, Keystone Custom Homes is a true champion of building locally to fight poverty globally.
Today Keystone has begun to build what we call “virtual” Homes for HOPE, and instead of building one single Home for HOPE, they allow their trade partners to contribute to Homes for HOPE on any of the 200+ homes they build in any given year. This allows multiple partners in competing industries to contribute towards their projects, and gives them (their trades) the choice to select which schedule and floor plan works best for them – and, if they wish, allows them to give participate more than once.
