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 lisaschlarbaum@hopehouseofcolorado.org for details.
