What Is HomeAid Atlanta?
Founded in 2001, HomeAid Atlanta is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that builds and renovates housing facilities for organizations serving homeless families and individuals in the metro Atlanta area. HomeAid Atlanta is the designated charity of 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.
HomeAid Atlanta's mission is to build new lives for homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach. This is accomplished through generous donations of construction services and materials from members of the homebuilding industry. 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 homeless families and individuals by focusing on increasing capacities at local emergency and transitional homeless shelters, providing more homeless families and individuals with an opportunity to transform their lives. HomeAid-built facilities provide Atlanta's homeless population with safe, dignified living environments that blend into neighborhoods.
Although our mission gives us broad latitude to engage in building projects across the entire Continuum of Care, from emergency shelters to transitional housing to permanent supportive housing, every HomeAid project supports an agency that provides services that help residents move toward self-sufficiency, such as education and job skills training, and physical and emotional support.
