When Lauren and Zane traveled to Uganda for the first time in 2015, the dream of creating a business that helped people around the world was born. In 2018, Collective Build Co. was able to connect with Homes4Homes and have had a successful partnership ever since. Giving is a key component of our mission; we believe in purpose over profit.
Homes for Homes was founded by Jonathan Harris and Mike Smalling as an extension of their passion for homes and desire to help others receive a home. After a trip to Uganda, they began planning to help some of the families they had met. The model was simple: to engage their partners in the real estate community to give a portion of their income to build homes for families in developing countries. In a short amount of time, individuals and companies made generosity a part of their business model by giving to Homes for Homes. Now, donors from all walks of life are giving to provide homes to families in need. We are currently working in 4 countries with ministry partners that know and serve the people of their communities.
The heart for our ministry stems from Isaiah 32:18 where God says
“My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest.”
By providing a home, we are working to preserve families and allow them to raise their children in a safe, healthy environment.
