From the very beginning, we’ve considered giving back to the communities, neighborhoods, and neighbors we serve to be part of our core. Our efforts have grown to create a culture within our company and our communities that helps inspire others to change their own corner of the world for the better.
We are not just selling homes; we are building communities where neighbors gather, connect, and do life together. Each year, teams in each community select a non-profit organization, school, or ministry that makes a big impact locally. From animal adoptions and feeding fire departments to food pantries and women’s shelters, these causes touch our hearts and call us to act.
The Miracle League believes everyone deserves a chance to play baseball and creates places where children with mental and physical disabilities can experience the joys of playing ball, making new friends, and being a part of something bigger than themselves. HistoryMaker Homes’ ongoing partnership with Miracle League DFW stems from our passionate belief in their mission: baseball is for all!
HistoryMaker Homes is honored to build for Homes for HOPE, an organization that brings homebuilders and trade partners together to construct and sell a home at little or no charge to maximize profits on the sale. These proceeds then are turned into micro loans, savings services, training, mentoring, and spiritual support to help those living in some of the most impoverished areas around the world become more self-sufficient.
The Greater Houston Builder’s Association’s Benefit Homes Project unites homebuilders and trades to build and sell a home and donate the profits to charity. The proceeds of the Benefit Homes Project end up with non-profits local to Houston: HomeAid Houston and Operation Finally Home. Both organizations build homes for veterans returning from deployment, which is where our history began in 1949. In addition, HomeAid Houston helps men, women, and children facing homelessness find a housing solution.
In 2022, HistoryMaker CEO Nelson Mitchell received the Hearthstone BUILDER Humanitarian Award. Since 1999, the award has donated more than $7 million to numerous charities, making it the homebuilding industry’s single largest charitable program.
To add to that grand total, HistoryMaker matched Hearthstone’s $150,000 award for a combined $300,000. Two organizations, Homes for HOPE and The Miracle League, split HistoryMaker’s donation, continuing our long-standing partnership in making a difference.
I felt like everyone we interacted with from Doug to Angela to Jim understood that, for us, this was a big purchase. Even though they must deal with customers like us everyday and be kind of accustomed to it, they answered every question with patience and seemed to really care that we felt comfortable with everything. I really appreciated that.
