New Story is Founded
In a coffee shop in Atlanta, GA our founders gathered together around a passion for improving lives through safe homes and a shared vision to change the traditional charity model.
100 Homes In 100 Days
After being accepted into Y Combinator, we launched our 100 Homes in 100 Days campaign. It was an insane 100 days, but our supporters rallied and made it happen!
El Salvador & Bolivia Expansion
Upon identifying fantastic partners, we were able to extend our reach and begin developing communities in Bolivia & El Salvador.
First Community Built!
Our first full community in Haiti was complete in Leveque - 151 homes. More than 750 people now live in safe homes here.
Participatory Design & Impact Data
Our building model has been transformed by including the families in the community planning and by measuring the complete impact of a home by collecting data at milestones throughout the process.
A Growing Team
Throughout the year, our team expanded to 8 individuals passionate about building life-changing communities. This is made possible by The Builders, a group of private donors that cover our operations.
650 Homes and Counting
In just two short years our amazing family of donors have funded 650 homes and built 353 homes in 6 different communities.
As we head into 2017, we're more determined than ever because of the incredible foundation of donors who believe in New Story. Our audacious but attainable goal of 1,000 communities built by 2026 means we have a lot of work to do and tremendous challenges ahead. Our team value, "think big, breakdown and execute" gives us clarity and confidence for the next phase of this vision. None of it is possible without you. Thank you for being a partner, advisor, and part of the New Story family as we work to transform lives and change parts of the world.
