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 120 projects at locations for 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 homeless families and individuals 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 homeless 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 temporarily homeless families and individuals.
HomeAid Atlanta serves as a "bridge," connecting builders, trades, and suppliers with local organizations serving Atlanta's homeless families and individuals. 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 great support for HomeAid's projects. Though we receive a large majority of our support through the HBA, involvement in a HomeAid project is not limited to HBA members - anyone in the community can get involved!
