The Hope Builders

at New Hope for Families

The Hope Builders remodeled and maintain the row of houses in the 300-400 block of West 2nd Street leased by IU Health to New Hope for Families, which provides child care and programming and emergency shelter to homeless families in the Bloomington area.  From time-to-time we also volunteer our services to other non-profits, churches, and individuals in the Bloomington area.

We have remodeled and renovated 4 houses which are currently used to house staff, provide temporary shelter to homeless families, and provide facilities to our nationally accredited child care and development program.  Periodically we also assist other non-profit agencies and individuals in need of short term project help.

In March of 2016 the Hope Builders were honored and humbled to be the recipients of the Be More Uplifting Award presented by the City of Bloomington Volunteer Network.  The Herald-Times has also recognized our contributions in an article published on February 8, 2016 which can be found here.

Our normal workday is on Wednesday afternoons from 1:00-5:00pm.  We welcome individuals of all ages and skill sets.  If you would like to join us or find out more about what we do, please click the email link at the bottom of the page and we'll be happy to get in touch with you.

Also check out the slideshow to the left to see some of the projects we have worked on and some of our dedicated team of individuals.
