How God is Building a New Resource Center:
Welcome to God Stories. As you may already know, God brought many people and circumstances together that allowed Hope House to acquire a residential home and open its doors over a decade ago.
Now that Hope House serves over 180 teen moms and 270 kids every year, God is at work again. As He leads us in building a new Resource Center and an Early Learning Center that will allow Hope House to triple the number of teen moms served every year, it is our pleasure to share how He is once again moving in miraculous ways. Welcome to God Stories.
Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.
God is on the move! 1.7
God is on the move!
I am so excited to share our amazing news! As many of you know, HomeAid Colorado chose our new Resource Center as a 2017 project. HomeAid Colorado also recruited home builder Meritage Homes to be our Builder Captain. This was miraculous as we knew that Meritage would donate their general contractor fees and bring in a portion of the job in donated labor and material.
However, we believed we would still have a significant gap in finding. By the end of 2016, Hope House had raised $2.8 million, a significant sum! However, our original budget for the Resource Center was $3.8 million, and we didn’t expect Meritage to bring in that much! Miraculously, when we met with Meritage on January 11, we were stunned to learn that they had worked with all of their vendors and subcontractors to bring our budget down to $2.8 million! Somehow, incredibly, our numbers matched!
God has done many miracles on behalf of our teen moms, but this one is amazing! We held our ceremonial groundbreaking on January 28, with 250 champions and teen moms attending! We officially break ground in late March and expect to complete the building in January 2018.
We are so incredibly blessed. Thanks to you, and thanks to our amazing God, we will soon celebrate a ribbon cutting on a beautiful new Resource Center — and empowering triple the number of teen moms each year!
P.S. You can still participate in our Capital Campaign as we are currently raising funds for the furnishings and the kitchen equipment for the new building. Contact [email protected] for details.
