We are so grateful for the amazing support we receive from our donors and volunteers. Work at The Glen is progressing quickly. We can’t thank the Town of Hilton Head enough for the donation of land that allowed for this community and our thanks to the many supporters who provided funding for infrastructure and site preparation. Special thanks go to Goldie and Helen Glenn and to the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry. And, we couldn’t build houses without our generous House Sponsors.
In September, the Hilton Head Area Association of Realtors raised the walls on their 2nd house in The Glen.
In July, we kicked off construction of a house sponsored by the Publix Super Markets Charities for Tomasina Cordero.
Ten local churches have come together to sponsor our first Apostles Build. Many thanks to Bluffton UMC, Christ Lutheran, The Church of the Cross, Church of the Palms, Island Lutheran, Live Oak Christian, Lord of Life Lutheran, Lowcountry Community, Lowcountry Presbyterian and St. Luke’s United Methodist for sponsoring this home for the Quesada Family.
Work is complete on the 12th house sponsored by First Presbyterian Church of Hilton Head and the Castellanos moved in September.
Our 11th house at The Glen is the Faith House. Three churches, Holy Family, St. Andrew by-the-Sea and St. Francis by the Sea, have come together to raise the funds and raise the walls on this home for the Fioritti Family.
On December 15, we raised the walls for our sixth Women Build. Many thanks to those who supported this build, including ZONTA, the Women’s Association of Hilton Head Island (WAHHI), Long Cove Club Charitable Advisory Committee and our primary sponsor, Women in Philanthropy, a fund of the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry. The house was dedicated in May for the Smith Family.
100 Houses! In February 2017 we dedicated our 100th House for Ana Johnson and her family. This house was sponsored by our current homeowners and with proceeds from the ReStore.

In March, we kicked off construction of a home to be sponsored by Tommy Arnold and his family for Librado and Alicia Vega.
An anonymous donor provided funding to build the next house (still under construction) for Jennifer Fields and her family in memory of Noah Solochek. Noah was the grandson of long-time volunteer Dr. Sheldon Solochek and Hilton Head was one of his favorite places to visit.
For the fifth house, once again, the unstoppable team at Colleton River raised the funds and built their second house at The Glen.
