About This Campaign

New Story is proud to partner with Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate to provide homes to families in survival mode.

The families served by this donation all lost their homes in the 2017 earthquake and haven’t been able to regain their footing since.

100% of your donation goes to building their home.

These families are all vetted by our local partner, have children, and the potential to thrive with the help of a safe home.

Make a one-time donation today.

Email for help, questions or more information on our real estate program.

Every penny of your donation goes to building a home for a family in need. That’s New Story’s promise.

Homes are more than shelter.

Living without a safe roof and clean floors leads to runoff water flowing through the floors and often leads to the spread of dangerous illnesses to infants and others. When we build, each home and community is designed to provide these basic needs which means parents no longer have to worry about even simple things, like their children playing on the floors of their home.

Having a door and windows with locks means that children and parents can sleep at night knowing they’re safe from what’s outside. In the communities we build, the new homes typically replace houses made from scrap metals or found resources that create unstable, temporary dwellings. Homes built by your donations provide personal security to safeguard belongings and valuables and prevent external violence.

For children growing up in poverty, unsafe home conditions make it very difficult to study and get proper sleep to focus in school. Every donation to homebuilding helps provide children with a proper place to focus and learn, as well as a cozy space to recharge at night. This means a brighter future for children in the communities we build.

A safe home gives parents the chance pursue opportunities to earn more money and start businesses. Instead of wondering where rent will come from or spending time trying to build their own homes, families can focus on thriving. We have seen many families begin businesses from their homes which provide not only more income for their family to meet everyday needs, but also inspires the next generation.

Our community and home layouts are designed with the input of the families who will reside there. This way we know that each family receives the gift of a home, while the community as a whole also has the foundation to grow stronger and thrive.
