More than $100,000 Raised for Home for Hope in Annafeld
With the help of more than 30 traders and suppliers in Billings, McCall Homes recently sold its second Home for Hope. Each of McCall Homes’ trade partners had the opportunity to contribute labor and materials to the home at 1847 Walter Creek Blvd. in McCalls’ newest neighborhood, Annafeld (south of Elysian Road).
All proceeds from the sale of this home are donated to HOPE International, a network of Christ-centered organizations that finance microloans and savings programs to help empower men, women and families to break the cycle of poverty and start or expand businesses. Other services of the organization include health care, literacy training, community empowerment initiatives and more in 16 impoverished countries
around the world.
Instead of a handout, HOPE International gives a hand up. Recipients of the organization’s microloans work hard to make repayments and start a new beginning for their families and communities.
From their trade partners to their homeowners and employees, McCall Homes’ mission is, “Empowering people. Building community.” McCallHomes.com
