Building Hope Capital Campaign: Phase Three Continues
Construction is steadily moving forward on the Nancy J. Bowen Home and the B.R. and Helen Greathouse Home, the fourth and fifth new homes on the Waco campus. These homes are part of the Building Hope Capital Campaign, a fundraising effort to provide new homes to better meet the needs of today’s residential youth.
The Building Hope Capital Campaign began in 2015 with the groundbreaking for the Dr. Jack Kyle and Evelyn Daniels Home followed by construction of Margaret Ann Yates Ashcraft Home and John E. Hilliard Home, both of which were completed in 2018. The Bowen and Greathouse homes are slated to open this summer. Each home can house up to 10 children, with a target of eight, and two sets of homeparents.
The decision to launch the capital campaign stems from a strategic initiative that challenged MCH to develop a new home design that considers the current and future population of residents, cost and maintenance efficiencies, and the expertise that MCH has gained through cutting-edge methods of care.
The campaign has now entered Phase Three which will fund three additional homes of the same design. The total campaign goal is to raise $23,720,000 to complete 11 homes in four phases.
“We will continue soliciting the gifts needed to complete all the new homes for our young people on the Waco campus,” said Trey Oakley, vice president for development. “This is truly an exciting project for our ministry and we are grateful for the way our benefactors have responded to this opportunity to bless those we serve.”
