Each year, the Home Builders Association of Northwest Louisiana builds the House for Hope. The 2015 House for Hope is located at 1110 Cypress Creek Circle in Norris Ferry Crossing. This southeast Shreveport subdivision is located just south of the intersection of Southern Loop and Norris Ferry Road, offering the convenience of being minutes from the heart of the city. Designed in the Chateau French style, the 2,040 heated square foot home features every updated amenity. The floor plan includes four bedrooms and three full bathrooms. The remote master suite has a walk-in closet with custom storage and en suite bathroom including every modern luxury. Off the great room, a covered patio with a wonderful outdoor kitchen makes outdoor entertaining easy. The stainless steel appliances in the kitchen are complemented by natural stone counters. In addition to the upgraded finishes and fixtures, the home includes the latest in structural and system technologies. This year’s House for Hope is built by local builder Brad Rivers of T&B Construction. Tickets are available for $100, and one lucky winner will win the house!
Proceeds from the House for Hope are used by Community Renewal International to build Friendship Houses. A Community Renewal Friendship House is a haven of hope in low-income, high-crime neighborhoods. Like a community center in a home, a Friendship House is a place for after-school education programs, character building, service projects, GED courses, tutoring, computer training, art and music lessons, family nights and much more. The house is lived in by a Community Coordinator employed by CRI and their family, who not only help the neighborhood - they become a part of it. House for Hope has built a Friendship House in the Queensborough neighborhood, and will next be building in the Highland neighborhood.
