Homes for Hope, Brentwood Builders, and area building trades invite the community to attend a ceremonial groundbreaking on Monday, August 9, from 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. at 1331 Willow Creek Drive, Mount Joy. The celebration marks the construction of a home that unites builders, subcontractors, suppliers, and consultants from the Lancaster area in the fight against global poverty.

Event speakers will include Michael Lennon, executive director of Homes for Hope; Rev. Leo Neff; Clair Hostetter, president of Brentwood Builders; Katie Nienow, director of development with HOPE International; Rich Brown, executive vice president of the Lancaster Building Industry Association; and Rapho Township Supervisor Jerry Swore.

The home will be built on behalf of Homes for Hope as a collaborative effort between Brentwood Builders and numerous area subcontractors, suppliers, and consultants. Homes for Hope is a nonprofit organization dedicated to connecting the building industry to the alleviation of worldwide poverty through microfinance. The donation from the sale of the home will benefit HOPE International, a microfinance network dedicated to alleviating world poverty by providing financial services for impoverished families.

HOPE’s primary service is the provision of small loans in 14 of the world’s most desperate countries. Starting at only $50-$100, these loans enable entrepreneurs to start or expand their small businesses, creating a steady income that will lift their families out of poverty. This unique partnership between local builders, trades, suppliers, and consultants will allow these building industry experts to have a worldwide impact simply by doing what they do best: building a house.
