OUR HISTORY

Newspaper clipping

Homes of Hope began in 1998 with the dream to provide families in poverty with a housing option they could both afford and be proud to call home. Simultaneously, another idea developed: to restore men’s lives through sobriety and job training as they acquired life-changing skills in constructing some of our homes. From humble beginnings remodeling and repairing mobile homes, Homes of Hope has grown into the largest non-profit developer of single-family affordable housing in South Carolina. The small job training program has grown into a successful workforce development initiative that truly transforms the lives of graduates and sets them up for successful careers in well-paying trades.
