Jagoe Building Homes for Hope!
Jagoe Homes recently completed another Home for Hope in partnership with Homes for Hope and Aid the Homeless! This special home was constructed along with numerous trade partners with the goal of donating all proceeds from the sale of the home to these nonprofit organizations. Together with HOPE International, the donation will provide financial resources and support to help relieve poverty in at least seventeen developing countries around the world, along with six local charitable organizations.

HOMES FOR HOPE
Homes for Hope unites home builders and trade partners in constructing “benefit” homes—at little or no charge—which are sold to generate proceeds that help fight poverty around the world.
Through its partnership with HOPE International, the proceeds are used to make micro loans to struggling people for resources such as chickens, seeds to grow food, or a small community store. Through these loans, individuals, families and communities are breaking free from the grip of poverty.

Aid the Homeless
A project of the Greater Owensboro Realtor Association, Aid the Homeless works to raise awareness and money toward ending homelessness in our area and beyond. Each year, Aid the Homeless sponsors outstanding fund raisers that succeed not only in raising money, but also in bringing Owensboro-area people together in a cause that makes lives and communities better.
In addition to service projects such as its support of our Homes for Hope project, Aid the Homeless is a faithful supporter of Owensboro homeless shelters where people find support, dignity, and a range of services that help make a difference. These shelters include the Daniel Pitino Shelter, Boulware Mission, St. Benedict’s and OASIS.

The work of HOPE International is impacting hundreds of thousands of people—more than 2.5 million to date—in 16 developing countries throughout the world. The vision and generosity of Homes for Hope’s builders and trade partners enables HOPE International to maximize the number of people and communities it reaches with hope for new lives.
