Live Well

Trumark Homes is dedicated to creating communities that foster an enthusiasm to connect, the strength to aspire and the compassion to give back. And that’s why we choose to partner with charity: water, a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. With 58% of the population lacking access to water, our hand-dug and drilled wells that brings clean, safe drinking water where it’s needed most, easing the daily struggle and supporting growing economies. For approximately every 50 homes we build, we work with charity: water to provide and serve approximately 200 people with fresh, clean water. 50 new homes = 200 people served. Over 7,500 people provided water. 20 wells completed. 9 wells in progress.
