For the past seven years, Jessica has partnered with Giveback Homes with the goal to turn the act of buying and selling homes into an opportunity to build homes for families in need. With every home purchased or sold, we contribute to helping those in need find safe and affordable housing. To date, she has sponsored eight build dates through the Giveback Homes organization, helping to provide eight wonderful families with safe and affordable housing. In 2020, she was invited to be featured as a panelist at Inman Connect, the premier event for the real estate industry, to speak about her involvement with the organization.
Giveback Homes is dedicated to creating a sustainable relationship between real estate professionals and communities in need throughout the world. Their goal is to create social change through the act of buying or selling a home and brings together those committed to creating social change by helping build homes for deserving families around the globe. Working together to organize fundraising events, Giveback Homes mobilizes teams of volunteer homebuilders, and inspires others to take action for social good.

“Sometimes people just need a simple invitation,” Giveback Homes founder Caroline Pinal says. That simple invitation was more than enough for Jessica Northrop and her real estate team (The Northrop Group) from Compass. During the last week of September, Jessica enlisted the help of her team and other Compass Realtors to travel to El Salvador and help build two homes for two deserving families in the Los Lotes community.
In just a matter of a couple days, with the partnership of Giveback Homes and the local community, the team literally built two homes from the ground up for these families.

Azucena del Carmen in and her family in Nicaragua work hard for everything they have, with a fierce determination to not let anything get in the way of their family surviving and thriving.
While they appreciate what they have, that doesn’t mean it’s easy. I so believe in the power and the change created through Giveback Homes that with every home purchased or sold, we contribute to helping those in need to find safe and affordable housing. It’s a 1:1 concept that makes what we do for an everyday living have a real, tangible impact on families whose lives can be transformed through the partnership with Giveback Homes.
