First Home for HOPE in North Dakota Underway

Posted: Updated:

Rain soaked ground is broken today on the very first Home for HOPE in all of North Dakota.

RedDoor Homes and its trade partners get down to business building and selling a house -- only to, ultimately, give away the net profits.  They estimate about $100,000 will be put to work by Homes for HOPE in the form of micro loans to aspiring third world entrepreneurs.  The organization works to lift people out of poverty by giving a hand up, not a hand out.

"We'll take it out and issue loans as small as $55 dollars.  This one home will probably help around 1,000 families, and that's just in the first six months.  It's really special to be a part of the very first Home for HOPE to be built in North Dakota," says Jack Nulty, Executive Director, Homes for Hope.

RedDoor says whoever buys the house will know they're getting a great home in a good school district at a fair price -- with a proven company to stand behind it.  They'll also be helping a lot of people.

"Hard to put your fingers on just the sense of joy that you can help out that many people and that, things you can't even relate to, but you can make that big a difference in the world from Bismarck, North Dakota," says Arthur Goldammer, Owner, RedDoor Homes.

The new home is going up at 3819 Crest Circle, Bismarck, and is expected to be completed in time for Spring Parade of Homes.  Homes for Hope says over three billion people live on less than two dollars per day, and typically, have no way out.  The group seeks to change that, one home at a time.
