Help Build Hope

Help Build Hope is a unique program within the parent company CrossRoads Missions. The Help Build Hope program works with organizations like ours to provide walls for affordable housing projects. Their mantra is, “We build frame walls by building partnerships, building relationships, building community, and building homes, bringing the event to your organization’s parking lot.” The walls provided by Help Build Hope allow our organization here at Habitat for Humanity to reduce costs and complete the construction of our Habitat homes quicker for families in need. This unique partnership between Habitat for Humanity and Help Build Hope fosters a loving community by providing first-time homeownership opportunities quickly and efficiently.

Our Partnership

Our partnership with Help Build Hope will contribute to constructing 40 homes at our site in West Grove, PA. The construction of our Habitat homes takes place in phases, and within each phase, a set of 5 homes is constructed. Help Build Hope will provide lumber for the walls of our phase 5 West Grove homes. This event will take place the weekend of September 23rd-25th, 2022. By Friday, September 23rd all lumber materials will be delivered to the Lima United Methodist Church parking lot to prepare for the lumber cut process. On the afternoon of Friday the 23rd, the lumber will be cut, stacked, and marked by volunteers to prepare for the build on Saturday. On Saturday the 24th, volunteers will construct the first floor of five homes in the church parking lot. On Sunday, the 25th, a church service will be held at Lima United Methodist Church to sign and dedicate the walls of these new homes. After worship, the final walls will be loaded onto the Help Build Hope truck and taken to West Grove, PA, where our volunteers will use them to build a set of townhouses for people in our region who need safe and secure housing. Providing and dedicating these walls to new homeowners is a beautiful process made possible by our partnership with Help Build Hope and the valiant efforts of all volunteers involved. We are so thankful for the many people supporting our affordable housing mission. To learn more about becoming a Habitat homeowner, visit https://hfhcc.org/homeownership/
