Mission: Mission: Building new lives for America's homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach.
Results: HomeAid has now completed 400 shelters around the country totaling 2,200,000 square feet of space at a cost of approximately $200 million, of which nearly 48 percent represents in-kind donations by builders and their trades and suppliers. Our facilities have now housed more than 200,000 people. We currently have 50 projects in development. It is a substantial record.
Target demographics: HomeAid partners with non-profit Service Providers that serve individuals who have suddenly become homeless through job loss, divorce, domestic violence, foreclosure and catastrophic illness. HomeAid also builds facilities for abused children, foster care youth, disabled veterans, homeless people living with HIV or AIDS, etc.
Geographic areas served: Atlanta; Colorado; Houston, TX; Inland Empire, CA; Los Angeles/Ventura, CA; Southeastern Michigan; Northern California; Northern Virginia; Orange County, CA; Portland, OR; Sacramento, CA; San Diego, CA; Seattle, WA; Southern Nevada; Washington, D.C.
Programs: HomeAid America creates local chapters across the nation, which inspire homebuilders (builder captains) and their subcontractors, suppliers, and consultants to donate labor, materials, and services. The effect is that each chapter renovates or constructs 1-2 shelters per year for their local community, which are operated by existing, qualified, community-based non-profit service providers.

HomeAid America has been a tremendous asset for its 20 chapters across the United States. Their ability to provide technical expertise along with strategic relationships has allowed not only chapters to get started but has allowed them to grow and implement their local shelter development program. As an executive director of one of the local chapters, HomeAid America is a vital resource for us all and has been critical for our success in providing housing for the homeless in our community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the development of HomeAid Orange County's shelter development program.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

seek more opportunties for others to support and be involved in providing housing for the homeless through HomeAid America and its chapters across the country.

My organization helps homeless families move toward self-sufficiency. HomeAid Northern California has brought so many resources to us -- building professionals, volunteer groups, in-kind donations ranging from appliances to food, and connections to funders. They helped us build one of our facilities and have kept coming back, year after year, to help maintain and improve it. I am continually amazed by their commitment resourcefulness.

HomeAid helped us turn a convalescent facility into transitional housing for eight homeless families. They have come back to paint, lay carpeting, donate a play structure, and perform many other services.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them more staff to do their amazing work.

Homeaid came to help our program out with a much needed facility face-lift by painting our two donation buildings, cleaning the grounds, organizing our clothing rack, and planting three beautiful rose bushes. Their volunteers were outstanding people with giant hearts. They were hardworkers and got the job done quickly and efficiently. We are forever thankful for them donating their time and energy to help our program shine.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
