Yesterday was a very exciting day here at Grand Homes. Not only was it the final day of Grand College sales training, but sales associates and office staff were able to come together for a very important cause. Special guests Jack Nulty, Executive Director at Homes for Hope, and Leah Rutt, the daughter of Hope International founder Jeff Rutt, joined Grand Homes for a check presentation.
During yesterday’s presentation, Ms. Rutt explained how her family would donate food and medical supplies in Ukraine before they decided they wanted to help in a way that would make a lasting difference. This is how HOPE International came to be.
Homes for HOPE is an arm of HOPE International that works with home builders to facilitate and encourage the construction of HOPE Homes. What makes HOPE Homes special is that the labor, materials and services are donated or discounted in order to increase profit. Profit from the sale then goes towards the provision of microloans to entrepreneurs in impoverished countries so they can start or expand their own small businesses. This enables business owners to earn a steady income to support their families and eventually rise out of poverty.
The home sale that allowed Grand to make this donation was built in the Frisco Hills community in Little Elm. This is the fourth home Grand Homes has built with Homes for HOPE. Our fifth HOPE Home is currently under construction at Chadwick Farms in Fort Worth.

Grand Homes is proud to be a part of this life changing opportunity and is extremely grateful for our amazing trade partners who helped make this effort possible. We could not have done it without them!
