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.

The Great!

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

day to day operation with the apartment building we are building in Rockdale County Ga.

Ways to make it better...

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

I am not aware of any changes that need to be made. I have no doubt they could use more employees.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The professionalism and great attitude Anne Carey has brought to this project. It is even better when you enjoy working with someone.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Professional, uplifting, deligent.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

benefit a hundreds of thousands who need shelter,education and opportunities to turn their lives aroundl

Ways to make it better...

the economics times had not made it longer to get started.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Being able to accomplish all they want to do in a depressed market.

One thing I'd also say is that...

With proper funding this organization can do more than most because of it's work ethic and organizational skills.

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.

The Great!

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

delivering donations of essential baby items to one of the shelters in Atlanta. the faces of the children are filled with such hope - it is something you never forget.

Ways to make it better...

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

separate it a little more from the GA Home Builders Association - so that maybe more exposure can be put out to the non-building community.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working on the first Project Playhouse event. It really brought our internal team closer together and was one of the true highlights of that year for our company.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

so committed! there are never questions of "if?" but only "when" and "what else can we do?"

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

build shelters and educational centers for EVERY homeless mother and child in Atlanta! Just think what they would be able to teach them to get them into new jobs and permanent housing!

Ways to make it better...

the building community in Atlanta was able to be as involved as in previous years. We just didn't get as many donations as we had hoped for.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

their ever-shrinking staff. There are MORE homeless people in Atlanta, and yet this organization has LESS people to do MORE work - and with less money.

One thing I'd also say is that...

the leadership of HomeAid Atlanta is exceptional. even with the smaller staff/team, the organization has continued their signature fund raising and building events seamlessly which, to me, is a testament to Ann Carey.

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.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Consistent dedication in good markets and bad to create awareness and raise funds for their cause. Very difficult when much of the their support comes from the building industry that has been hit hard.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide tons of housing for their mission. There are tremendous opportunities for securing land or existing homes to support their cause.
