Groundbreaking of new home in Garland TX by Grand Homes for Hope International

Grand Homes invites members of the community to attend a groundbreaking celebration of their ninth Home for HOPE. The groundbreaking ceremony will take place on Thursday, May 27 from 12:00 until 1:30 at 342 Gleneagles Dr, Garland, TX in their Country Club Estates neighborhood.

The charity home will be built as part of our master-planned neighborhood on Country Club Road just north of Hwy 66. Grand Homes’ trade partners – subcontractors, suppliers, and consultants – will donate or discount their labor, materials and services to help secure a large donation upon the sale of the home. The donation from the sale of the 4 bedroom, 2,580 square foot home, priced at $571,900, will benefit HOPE International, a microfinance network dedicated to alleviating world poverty by providing financial services for impoverished families. The house can be purchased at any phase of construction – even pre-sold to allow the customer to make the house uniquely their own. Country Club Estates is in a convenient location with shopping and dining close by, walking distance to Tuckerville Park and in the Garland ISD with freedom of choice schools.

HOPE’s primary service is to provide loans to poor families in 16 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 that will lift their families out of poverty. By providing loans, HOPE gives a “hand up” not a “hand out” to families that will create sustainable business income for future entrepreneurs. Across the country, Homes for HOPE has reached out to over 100 builders and Grand Homes has answered the call a sixth time to participate in the initiative that allows builders to have a worldwide impact simply by doing what they do best: build homes.

Grand Homes will be contributing all proceeds from the sale including donations from their trade partners in the final sum given to Homes for HOPE. 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,” says Mr. Brooks.
