On October 24th we had the pleasure of breaking ground on our Building for Change fundraising initiative in partnership with Midland’s Open Door. This special construction will be a custom built home, with 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of the home will benefit Midland’s Open Door. This will enable the organization to provide case management and mentoring services to homeless single mothers so they are able to secure permanent housing, maintain financial stability, and build a community of supportive, life-changing relationships.

The groundbreaking ceremony was a great success due to the efforts and commitment of all involved, including both the Midland’s Open Door and Greystone Homes teams, and the wonderful assistance of the Great Lakes Loons marketing team. We’re very excited to be moving forward with this project, and we plan to continue providing updates as the home is built and this initiative becomes reality.
