Weller’s Visit to the Grand Bahama Children’s Home: A Beacon of Hope and Resilience

At Weller Development, our commitment to community support goes beyond business, extending into the heart of the places we’re developing. On Saturday, November 18th, we were honored to be part of a remarkable event at the Grand Bahama Children’s Home (GBCH), where the collective spirit of giving surpassed our expectations.


The Fundraiser Event

The fundraiser event was nothing short of inspiring. High school students from Grand Bahama showcased their talents, captivating the audience with performances that echoed the resilience and creativity of the community. Speeches from fellow donors resonated with our shared commitment to making a positive impact, and together, we not only met but exceeded the donation goal of $80,000, a testament to the generosity of the local Grand Bahama community, and our passion to see the GBCH succeed.  All of the funds raised go directly to the operating costs to run the Children’s Home.


Visit to the Children’s Home

On November 17th, Weller teammates Matt Rienzo and Ashley Collins had the privilege of visiting the Grand Bahama Children’s Home to connect with the organization and witness firsthand the impact it has on the lives of these resilient children.

The GBCH serves as a safe haven for children in the Northern Bahamas who have faced significant challenges such as abuse, abandonment, or neglect. Devastated by Hurricane Dorian, the home underwent a remarkable reconstruction due to the generosity of the community. Now expanded to five buildings, equipped with a washer and dryer facility, a playground, and a garden area, GBCH stands as a testament to resilience and community support.

During the visit, Matt and Ashley had the chance to bond with the children, discovering their favorite superheroes, sports, and hobbies, and the remarkable staff at GBCH, some of whom have dedicated decades to the care of these children, serving not just caregivers; but as parental figures. Their unwavering commitment and love contribute significantly to the nurturing environment that defines GBCH. These personal connections go beyond the surface, representing what it means to be part of a community that cares.


Weller’s Pride in Support

Weller Development takes immense pride in supporting GBCH. It’s more than a financial contribution; it’s a commitment to being part of a journey that offers a secure refuge for children, empowering and enhancing their lives. We are privileged to contribute to an organization that symbolizes hope, resilience, and the unwavering spirit of community.
