This program is built specifically for impact-driven real estate agents to fund homes by selling homes. Customized for your needs in these categories:
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.
Every dollar of public donations goes directly to a housing project supporting vulnerable families.
We use tech and innovation to make affordable housing more accessible for low-income families.
We partner with families by offering the resources they need to secure the housing they want.
We're partnering with Charity Vest to enable easy donations and donations from escrow.
Attend New Story in-person and virtual events, plus look for ways to be highlighted and featured to our network.

Opportunities to visit the field with other top raising real estate professionals.
"New Story is an impressive innovative non-profit organization. It puts 100% of donations towards transforming unlivable places into communities of safe sustainable homes for about $8,000 thousand dollars per home. As real estate professionals, we have a keen understanding of how a home improves a family's quality of life and we believe in New Story's mission that a home provides the foundation needed for success."
“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.”
“A home is more than a house, it’s a feeling, a milestone, and a place where memories are made. At Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty, that’s how we approach every transaction and interaction with our clients. Being able to support New Story is another important step in making someone’s dream of owning their own home possible, and we are excited to be part of it.”
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 2023 that still need funding and your donation would go towards these families first.
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.
Here are the most popular ways we have worked with agents:
Please let us know how you would like to donate and we will make it work for you!
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.
This six-person family lives in a small, makeshift shack that’s one half living space and one-half space to raise animals. The husband and wife both work long, hot days in farming to support their four children — all under the age of 8. Despite their evident work ethic, they don’t have the foundation to escape the cycle of poverty. While you can barely call their house a home, what stood out the most when we met them was the joy and palpable connection this family had. They grinned and held each other while we took a photo of them standing on the dirt floors of their home, where they’ll only have to live a few months longer. They’re most looking forward to having space to keep their children safe — a foundation to thrive.
Nuevo Cuscatlan, El Salvador
At age 14, Alejandra is already is determined to become a lawyer. She has an ever-growing collection of academic awards, certificates, and class honors, all carefully hung in her home, contrasting with the worn tarp and rusted metal of their walls. Without reliable electricity and computer access, Alejandra cannot complete her homework assignments. In her new safe home, she’ll have access to ongoing electricity and a community computer lab, where she can learn better, faster.
As a father who has raised two children in a home not suited for the tropical storms and earthquakes his community experiences, Mario sees his new house through the lens of the protection and peace he can now provide for his family. He has continuously made it clear to us that he never expected such a life-shifting opportunity like this to come his way, so every small step towards completion strengthens his hope. Towards the end of 2019, Mario was able to step through the front door of his soon-to-be home and watch his children run throughout a space that will make stability tangible.
El Espino, El Salvador
Freddie Hernandez is a 13-year-old only-child living in a makeshift home with his parents in El Espino, El Salvador. Like any loving parents, Freddie’s mom and dad have higher hopes for him than he could imagine. Amid the daily trials of rainfall and mosquito infestation, Freddie brings joy and hope to his parents through his guitar. Freddie was gifted a guitar by his school just over a year ago, and he has been practicing ever since. His discipline directed towards this newfound passion affirmed his parents’ belief in their son’s incredible potential for the arts. We had the honor of hearing Freddie play music he taught himself, and couldn’t help but dream of the possibilities he could achieve when he can move into his new, safe home, which is currently under construction.
Ahuachapán 2, El Salvador
In August of 2019, 55 families moved into Ahuachapán 2, including the Lima family. The Limas were six months pregnant when they were able to move into their new, safe home. As the Limas witnessed the building of their new home and community, they knew a promising future was being constructed for their baby boy to enter into. On November 1, 2019, the Limas welcomed their new baby boy into their stable home, making Jeffrey the first child born into the thriving community of Ahuachapán 2. While unsafe shelter would have stripped Jeffrey’s opportunity to flourish in his education, health, and dreams, the sustainable community of Ahuachapán 2 will provide him with the environment that only empowers him to grow into his potential.
