Being involved in our community – both locally and internationally – is a value for all of us at Leitner Construction. We want to use our home remodeling talents and influence to better the world around us, from building your home to building a home for those in need.
The Neo Fund:
In 2008, Leitner Construction joined a Nicaraguan pastor and his family in reaching out to impoverished people living in the city dump of the country’s capital city, Managua. This ministry’s focus is to bring healing and hope by equipping the community with skills and opportunities for jobs and a life apart from the dump. Casa Havilah is one group rescuing severely abused girls from slavery and prostitution, giving them healing and hope and an education and the chance for a safe and bright future.
Tim serves on the board of The Neo Fund. The Neo Fund provides sustainable community development for the poorest of the poor that provides micro loans to small business start ups in Nicaragua. The board has just committed to providing the same service to the impoverished people of Haiti. Take a look here: www.theneofund.org
Tim and Jill Leitner have close ties with an outreach to orphans in Honduras. They have led multiple teams of youths and adults to help the people there. Over a course of time, they helped build a home for orphaned boys. The last several trips to Honduras were to visit with the women and children hit the hardest by poverty. The team provided them with basic necessities. Learn more at: www.hopefarmhonduras.org
My Father’s House Family Shelter:
Over many years of home remodeling in the Portland area, Leitner Construction has supported My Father’s House, a shelter for homeless families. This shelter is privately funded and assists families with long-term solutions. Read more here: www.familyshelter.org
