Rosewood Communities broke ground this week on a new house that will benefit Homes For Hope, a charity that raises money for Hope International.
The home will be built at Waterstone Cottages on Blacks Drive and is the third home built by Rosewood Communities for Homes For Hope.
Rosewood Communities teams up with its suppliers and subcontractors to build the home. The partners in the home donate or deeply discount goods and services, maximizing the proceeds form the sale of the home. When the home is sold the profits are donated to Homes For Hope. Hope International uses the money to make micro loans to small businesses in third-world countries like Haiti. To date, Rosewood’s contributions to Homes for Hope have helped more than 9,000 people.
Member companies contributing to Rosewood’s Homes for Hope project include Allcon of Greenville, which with its suppliers donates the roof of the home, Carter Lumber, which donates the door and window packages, and Greer State Bank, which finances the project.
Homes for Hope, based in Frisco, Texas, also is an HBA member. To learn more about Homes for Hope, click here.
