Real estate agents:

The nonprofit give-back made just for you.

A donation of $7k fully funds a life-changing safe home for a family currently living in danger in Mexico.

This program is built specifically for impact-driven real estate agents to fund homes by selling homes. Customized for your needs in these categories:

  1. Concierge service from the New Story team to support you
  2. Turnkey content to share with your network and clients
  3. Impact reports to highlight the difference you’re making

We do housing differently.

New Story is tackling one of the world’s biggest problems: homelessness.

An estimated 3 billion people will be living without access to adequate shelter by 2030. To change that will take courage, innovation, and a community of people willing to do things differently. We know you’re as passionate about helping others find home as we are. Join us in the journey to ending homelessness for good.

A home changes everything.

Just $7,000 can fund a home for a family in need. Join us to fund homes for families in need as you help your clients find their dream homes every day.

“My latest clients were thrilled with the home sponsorship on their behalf and I’m certain New Story will be a topic of discussion when we get together with friends. It’s so easy to open your site on my mobile and show clients/friends in a social setting. Thanks again to your team for the great email to my clients and the letter from Brett. The Ocuituco Data Report is well done too and is probably very effective for my hyper-educated, data-crazed clients.”

FAQ

What is included for a home coast of $8,000? How big are the homes? 

  • The homes are about ~800 square feet but vary depending on the community and the home design.
  • Each home has a kitchen, plumbing, running water, and power.

How long does it take to build each home?

  • On average it takes 6-12 months to build a full community of 50-150 homes from start to finish. We use your donations first for communities that are already under construction to keep this time shorter. We have several communities in Mexico that we expect to finish in 2021 that still need funding and your donation would go towards these families first.

I want to share this work with my network and clients. What content do I get to share? 

  • New Story will provide you with turnkey content and information about our work for easy distribution to your network.
  • You will also receive quarterly construction updates from the field so you can provide updates via email, social media or whatever you prefer. These serve as great touchpoints with past clients as well as general marketing for prospective clients. 

What ways can I donate that work best for my business?

Here are the most popular ways we have worked with agents:

  • Start your own campaign, receive a landing page and donate to your campaign whenever it makes sense.
  • Donate quarterly, monthly, after a sale, or whenever you have enough for a home. 
  • Donate on behalf of your clients and New Story will provide them with construction updates on the project and family your gift is supporting. 
  • Donate straight from escrow each time you close a deal. New Story is working to make this process easier and we would love to work with you on figuring out how to best do this. 

Please let us know how you would like to donate and we will make it work for you!

Can I go to the field? I want to visit the families:

  • To respect the privacy of the families and not flood the communities with constant visitors we only bring down select groups of VIP New Story donors to visit communities. 
  • There will be opportunities to visit the field for the agents that raise the most and get the most involved with our work. More details to come as field trips resume later this summer.

Your generosity builds more than shelter.

Health & Sanitation

Living without a safe roof and clean floors leads to runoff water flowing through the floors and often leads to the spread of dangerous illnesses to infants and others. When we build, each home and community is designed to provide these basic needs which means parents no longer have to worry about even simple things, like their children playing on the floors of their home.

Safety

Having a door and windows with locks means that children and parents can sleep at night knowing they’re safe from what’s outside. In the communities we build, the new homes typically replace houses made from scrap metals or found resources that create unstable, temporary dwellings. Homes built by your donations provide personal security to safeguard belongings and valuables and prevent external violence. Read more

Education

For children growing up in poverty, unsafe home conditions make it very difficult to study and get proper sleep to focus in school. Every donation to homebuilding helps provide children with a proper place to focus and learn, as well as a cozy space to recharge at night. This means a brighter future for children in the communities we build. Read more

Income

A safe home gives parents the chance pursue opportunities to earn more money and start businesses. Instead of wondering where rent will come from or spending time trying to build their own homes, families can focus on thriving. We have seen many families begin businesses from their homes which provide not only more income for their family to meet everyday needs, but also inspires the next generation. Read more

Community

Our community and home layouts are designed with the input of the families who will reside there. This way we know that each family receives the gift of a home, while the community as a whole also has the foundation to grow stronger and thrive. Read more
