Jagoe Homes Teams with Homes for Hope to Help End Worldwide Poverty [VIDEO]

Jagoe Homes - Jagoe Cares

The partnership allows homes built in the tri-state to help bring a family out of poverty on the other side of the planet.

Homes for Hope was formed in 1998 by Jeff Rutt, a homebuilder and founder of the charity organization, HOPE International. The goal was to invite fellow builders ”to empower entrepreneurs in developing countries through sustainable solutions to physical and spiritual poverty.”

With any Homes for Hope build, the builders and their trade partners such as subcontractors and supplies, agree to donate their profits from the job to HOPE International who in turn uses the funds to offer loans to entrepreneurs in poverty-stricken areas of the world to help them pull themselves out of poverty and make a better life for themselves, their families, and their communities.

What I find interesting about the process is that this isn’t just a handout, the recipients are expected to repay the loans, and once they do, that same money is re-loaned to another individual so that they too can get on their feet and become self-sustained.

In the video below, Owensboro-based Jagoe Homes owners, Scott and Bill Jagoe, explain why they felt compelled to join with Homes for Hope and they good that has already resulted from this young partnership.
