I have been with HomeAid Houston, an organization providing warm, dignified housing to the transitionally homeless, since the beginning in 2003 and I can say without a doubt it has been one of the most satisfying and fulfilling endeavors of my life. Seeing the tangible results both in the building process and the changed lives is incredible. Many thanks to the agencies, volunteers, builders and suppliers who make it all possible.
I joined the HomeAid Board about a year ago. It has opened my eyes to how a focused group of talented individuals can make positive changes that impact generations. HomeAid conscientiously evaluates each project it selects to ensure that it meets their vision of enabling the transitionally homeless to rebuild their lives with dignity. They are good stewards with the contributions they receive and take their obligations to put the money to good use very seriously. I have toured several of the facilities they enhanced and met some of the residents whose lives they have touched, and each time I am more impressed with the accomplishments of HomeAid. I am extremely proud to be a part of this group.
Home Aid Houston has provided hundreds of beds and changes countless lives for the homeless community in Houston. They do so by partnering with Houston's leading designers, remodelers and builders and the Greater Houston Builders Association. They focus on executing dollars and expertise to the recipient versus operations of the organization. The staff is hardworking, dedicated, and excellent in their field.
Home Aid Houston is an outstanding organization that provides housing for the homeless. They have provided hundres of beds, improved conditions in existing buildings, and have changed countless lives. Home Aid Houston is a leader in this field and make projects financially, physically and politically viable where they might otherwise falter. They make every effort to mazimize dollars spent on the homeless recipient versus operational/soft costs.
HomeAid Houston helps qualified care agencies work with the generous Houston building community to create housing for the transitionally homeless. I got to know the organization when they build 48 beds for Wellsprings Village and a 16-unit dormitory for the Mission of Yahweh, initially designated for hurricane Katrina and Rita evacuees. Since that time each organization has helped many women and children get back on the feet. HAH has also worked with SEARCH, Santa Maria Hostel, the Women’s Home, The Open Door Mission and many other providers making a difference in Houston. Home Aid Houston gets, and deserves my time, money and loyalty!
Great organization that helps mainly women and children. I have personally seen the benefits that these families have received by the work that this charity does by building dignified housing for those who want and need a hand up not a hand out.
HomeAid Houston has done amazing work in the community! Since 2003, they have completed 23 projects, adding nearly $8 million in real estate to Houston's homeless community. They are supported by an amazing board of directors and the strength and commitment of the Greater Houston Builders Association. Go to the website homeaidhouston.org to see some photographs of the shelters they have built!
HomeAid volunteers and contributors work behind the scenes to construct, improve and repair dignified housing for the unfortunate in our communities who find themselves homeless. Many who benefit are women and children just needing something temporary and safe while they pull their lives back together. Many others have bravely served in the military and need a stable environment in which to heal. The builders, remodelers and suppliers who work on behalf of HomeAid do so willingly, energetically and without recognition since they are making the repairs, constructing the buildings and enhancing the spaces for a primary charity which provides the personal services. The HomeAid volunteers give their time, talents, services, crews and supplies to create beautiful living spaces and enhance the healing environments for many area charities so the children, ladies and gentleman can build new lives from a position of pride.
