Mission: The mission of HomeAid Atlanta is to build and maintain dignified housing where temporarily homeless families and individuals can rebuild their lives. HomeAid acts as the housing developer and liaison between homeless service providers, builders, trade partners and community volunteers. HomeAid Atlanta strives to improve the conditions of Atlanta's temporarily homeless families and individuals by focusing on increasing capacities at local transitional housing facilities, providing more homeless children, women and men with an opportunity to restore their lives. Founded in 2001, HomeAid Atlanta is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working in partnership with the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, and is a local chapter of HomeAid America, a leading national provider of transitional housing for the temporarily homeless.

Results: Since 2001, HomeAid Atlanta has completed 16 housing developments that serve the temporarily homeless, including victims of domestic violence, teen mothers, abused and abandoned children, and homeless families. These developments serve more than 750 homeless children, women and men each year.

Geographic areas served: Metro Atlanta (Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry and Rockdale counties)

Programs: Through the generosity of metro atlanta's home builders, their trade partners, financial institutions, sponsors and the public, homeaid atlanta has built 18 transitional housing facilities and one free-of-charge health clinic for the homeless, with additional projects currently in development. More than 1,000 temporarily homeless people are provided housing each year in metro atlanta through homeaid atlanta-built transitional housing facilities. In addition, thirty-four (34) homeaid cares projects have been completed, assisting local service providers with repairs and improvements to their facilities serving the homeless.

During my three year association with HomeAid I have been constantly reminded of three things; the deep suffering and physical and emotional stresses endured by those facing homelessness on a daily basis; their strong desire to turn their lives around and finally; the broad range of support networks fighting to help these people improve their lives. But these support networks also need help. This is where HomeAid comes in. With our support networks we are able to do what homebuilders do best- build housing. Finally, it is important to understand that support comes in many different ways; including donating money, material, expertise or volunteering at one of the organizations fundraising events. Please visit our website to learn more.

We are partnering with Homeaid Atlanta on building a shelter for homeless and abused women in the east Atlanta area. They are extremely disaplined and responsive to our request. As a builder during very difficult times this is even more important in order to finish our task and save time and money.

HomeAid Atlanta is a very special organization of which I am proud to be affiliated, both professionally through Monte Hewett Homes and personally through the donation of my time. HomeAid has many programs, events and other ways for local builders and their employees to get involved and have a significant impact on the lives of the temporarily homeless in Atlanta. They continually add and change programs to find ways for people to be involved at any monetary/time commitment level. The Essentials for Young Lives drive, which collects essential items for homeless babies and toddlers, is the event i look forward to most every year.

Great local and hands on local charity. They have a keen interest in their mission and provide direct support to families in need of transitional housing. We've been involved for 4 years with their Project Playhouse fundraiser. It creates a lot of awareness and its impact in immediately felt. We hope and plan to participate in the future.
