Local home builder Bay to Beach Builders Inc. recently celebrated with its trade partners as they dedicated the first Home for Hope built in Delaware.
Bay to Beach Builders Inc. along with its trade partners, built this home with the goal of donating the proceeds to Homes for Hope, a nonprofit organization that, together with HOPE International, provides financial resources and support to help alleviate poverty in 16 developing countries around the world.
“We love the fact that this is hand up and not a handout and that it is sustainable and that this can be impactful for generations, families will see long lasting effects of this, to know that our organization can be a part of breaking the cycle of poverty for families in other parts of the world is just an amazing thing.” said Deric Parker, owner of Bay to Beach Builders Inc.
Bay to Beach owners Deric and Carla Parker are a fifth generation Delmarva Peninsula family invested in their community. The Parkers say they are not only invested in their local community, they are also investing in their global community. They said they know families living on less that $5 per day aren’t able to provide for the basic needs, but it’s not because they aren’t capable. It’s because the capital needed to start a business is not available — at least not at a fair rate — and they are doing something about this injustice.
