What Do We Do?
Through the generosity of metro Atlanta's homebuilders, building material suppliers, trades, financial institutions, sponsors, and the community, HomeAid Atlanta has completed over 140 projects at locations for people experiencing homelessness, including victims of domestic violence, teen mothers, veterans and more. HomeAid utilizes connections with building industry professionals and community organizations to achieve our mission of building new lives for families and individuals experiencing homelessness through housing and community outreach.
Past projects include transitional housing facilities, one free-of-charge health clinic for the homeless, and one teen center, with additional projects always in development. The result—more than 750 people are provided housing each year in metro Atlanta through HomeAid Atlanta-built housing facilities. HomeAid's multi-unit facilities are re-used an average of three times per year by families and individuals experiencing homelessness.
HomeAid Atlanta serves as a "bridge," connecting builders, trades, and suppliers with local organizations serving Atlanta families and individuals experiencing homelessness. Working with HomeAid-recruited volunteer builder leaders, our HomeAid Builder Captains, we manage projects for our partners. We are extremely fortunate to be the designated charity of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association (HBA). The HBA and its members provide integral support for HomeAid's projects.
