The Bigelow Award celebrates a partner who, like Perry, embodies our organizational values of Faithfulness, Perseverance, Honesty, and Creativity.
Our first annual Bigelow Award goes to Mr. Steve Brooks of Grand Homes. The award was presented by Homes for HOPE’s founder, Jeff Rutt, in a moving ceremony which was held during a recent Shinn Builder Partnerships benchmark group meeting. Reflecting on what it meant to him to receive the award, Mr. Brooks shared
“It was a shock! I was very moved. Thank you so much! I feel so honored to be a part of such an incredibly wonderful charitable organization. Every component makes it the perfect charity. You give hope to those who have learned hopelessness. You have an obvious love for Jesus and give the people you serve a hand up, not a handout. There is such a multiplier effect. Long after we’re all gone the impact will still be growing!”
