Building a Home in El Salvador
Meet the Boys of Hope House
"I lived on the streets of Guadalajara,
eating from trash cans. I come to Hope House,
now I go to school and learn a trade."
Smart, a loving husband, father, and grandfather believed in helping others in need. On hearing
of the double earthquakes of 2001 John was determined to help the poor of El Salvador rebuild
their communities. As a developer, this was a perfect fit. John had founded SheltersPlus after his retirement
in 1996. Under his leadership over 160 homes have been built in El Salvador. John died in 2008.
His wife and family continue the work of the Foundation.
