NEWS & UPDATES
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.
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.
We often say partnering with Homes for HOPE is all about the long game. Partnerships take a while to cultivate, homes take a bit to be built, and loans take time to be repaid. But in the end, partnerships are solidified, homes are built, and loans are repaid by HOPE clients helping them break the cycle of poverty. No partnership embodies that sentiment like our most recent launch with Capstone Homes in Ramsey, MN. 15 years ago, Homes for HOPE Founder, Jeff Rutt, and Capstone Homes Founder, Ben Minks found themselves on a trip together in the Dominican Republic meeting HOPE clients. It’s safe to say a metaphorical tree was planted on that trip and began to blossom last week in a small town northwest of Minneapolis.
At McGuinn Hybrid Homes, it is our goal to provide homebuyers with the right mix of style and quality at the right price. We want to ensure that each of our client's home buying experience is more than writing a contract on a house & moving in after closing. We want it to be an interactive experience where the buyer is an active participant in the design, construction and closing of THEIR HOME.
