Last weekend, staff from across the country made their way to Tijuana, Mexico to participate in the company’s annual Homes of Hope expedition. Colliers project Leaders has been participating in Homes of Hope for over ten years.

The 12 employees, and members of their families, worked in two groups to build homes for two families.

Muddy Start

There were some challenges during the construction process. The weather did not cooperate providing a rainy, muddy construction site for the team on day one.

“It was a tough start to this build with all the rain,” says VP Business Development Anne Glasgow during her discussion with Infrastructure Services Lead Doug Simpson after the build. “We tried to get the painting done and there was so much rain, it kept washing off.”

After two days, the crews handed over the keys of the completed homes to the extremely appreciative families. “It was really great working with the families and having them work right alongside us,” says Doug.

Trip to Walmart  

The staff also really wanted to make a difference for the families and chipped in an additional $1,100 for each family to help them begin life in their new home. An unexpected shopping-trip to Walmart, something the families had never experienced, overwhelmed them.       

“I think the impact will be immense for them,” says Anne. “They were all crying, when we handed them the keys to their new home.”

Rewarding Experience

Both Doug and Anne, who have participated multiple times in Homes of Hope, admit they will be back. As Anne emphasizes, “every year is different but every year is equally enriching. I really encourage everybody in the company to really consider it.”  

 “And bring some friends along,” adds Doug. That makes it an even more rewarding experience.”
