Boevers’ House of Hope Raises over $60,000 for YFS!
YFS was selected by the Central Oklahoma Home Builders Association (COHBA), and it’s charitable foundation, the Oklahoma Home Builders Foundation, as one of three charities to benefit from the 2015 House of Hope.
Annually, a COHBA member builds a home, the House of Hope, to sell for the benefit of local charities. The volunteer home builder constructs the home free of charge and after the home has sold, proceeds from the home’s sale are distributed to partner charities to benefit children in local communities.
This year’s House of Hope builder is Phil Boevers, of Boevers Homes LLC, constructed a 2,200 square foot, old-world, bungalow-style home on a half-acre lot in the Emerald Pointe housing edition of Piedmont. The home came complete with three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms and fully loaded with top of the line amenities. Boevers has built over 1,000 homes and is both a resident and active member of the Piedmont community.
“It’s an honor to lead a project that brings so many people together to make a positive difference in children’s lives,” says House of Hope Builder, Phil Boevers.
“This is an incredible opportunity for business leaders and community members to impact the lives of children in our communities. As charities, we can’t do our work without strong community support,” says Dee Blose, Executive Director of Youth & Family Services, Inc.
