Grand Homes will be contributing its own overhead and profit, including the donations from our trade in the final sum given to Homes for HOPE.

HOPE’s primary service is the provision of microloans in 12 of the world’s most desperate countries. Starting at only $50, these loans enable entrepreneurs to start or expand their small businesses, creating a steady income to lift their families out of poverty. Across the country, Homes for HOPE has reached out to over 100 builders, and Grand Homes has answered the call a second time to participate in the initiative that allows builders to have a worldwide impact simply by doing what they do best: building homes.
Despite a nation-wide crunch in the housing market, Stephen Brooks, CEO and owner of Grand Homes, believes in the idea of giving back. “Grand Homes has always supported, and will continue to support, many local charities to benefit the communities in which we build; Homes for HOPE allows us to have an impact beyond our own community to help eliminate poverty in areas of need throughout the world,” said Brooks.
Bob Morris, Executive Vice President of the HBA of Greater Dallas, praised the collaboration between Grand Homes and Homes for HOPE, saying, “The Home Builders Association of Greater Dallas is pleased to represent members, such as Grand Homes and Homes for HOPE, who see the value in serving the community both here in the Dallas Metroplex and abroad. It is a privilege to know that our members are making an investment in something bigger than themselves and their own financial gain. … Long-term, they are impacting lives and giving hope to generations down the road. We are excited to support and promote Homes for HOPE projects.”
