Shawn Forth Featured in the Oklahoman
Shawn Forth Custom Homes, a builder partner of Homes for Hope, was recently highlighted by Dyrinda Tyson in a news article in the Oklahoman . It covers the recent completion of their first Home for Hope project, a 2,300-square foot home located at 18800 Havenbrook Road in Edmond, Oklahoma.
The article does a great job identifying what makes a Home for Hope special; quality craftsmanship and hope for nearly 1,000 underserved families around the world.
For the eye, there’s the spacious front porch. A bonus room upstairs with its own full bath and closet. Granite counter tops in the kitchen. Premium flooring underfoot. For the heart? Hope.
“When a buyer buys this house, it’ll help 1,000 families,” said Jack Nulty, executive director of Homes for Hope. “I mean, somebody needs a house, right?”
Shawn Forth, the owner of Shawn Forth Custom Homes, was interviewed along with Jack Nulty and shared his heart for the project. As a business owner, he understands the need for capital to build a business, put his God-given talents and gifts to work, and provide for his family.
“They’re loaning this money to a family to create a business,” he (Shawn Forth) said. “So by being in business myself, I see the benefits and how hard a struggle it is to do that. These people don’t have anything.”
“It’s more of a hand up than a hand out because they have to repay that loan,” he said. “Not only that, but they teach them banking and savings skills, and health skills.”
To learn more about purchasing this home, contact Angel Thompson, Shawn Forth Custom Homes, at email@example.com or call 405.359.220.
