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 families and individuals expeiencing homelessness 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 housing for the people experiencing homelessness.
HomeAid Atlanta's mission is to build new lives for families and individuals experiencing homelessness through housing and community outreach. This is accomplished through generous donations of construction services and building materials from members of the home building industry. HomeAid serves as the housing developer and liaison between homeless service/shelter providers, builders, trade partners and community volunteers.
HomeAid Atlanta strives to improve the conditions of Atlanta families and individuals experiencing homelessness by focusing on increasing capacities at local emergency and transitional shelters, providing more 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.
