Approximately 3.5 million people experience homelessness each year.
About HomeAidHomeAid is a leading national non-profit provider of housing for today's homeless. The organization builds and renovates multi-unit shelters for America's temporarily homeless families and individuals, more than one million of whom are children, while they rebuild their lives.
Founded in 1989 by the Orange County chapter of the Building Industry Association of Southern California (BIA/SC), an affiliate of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), HomeAid has expanded throughout the country to 18 chapters in 12 states and one national office (headquarters): Irvine, CA and two regional offices: Denver, CO and Pensacola, FL.
HomeAid has provided housing for more than 159,000 individuals who have been rendered temporarily homeless due to circumstances beyond their control, including:
Through the generosity of America's builders, their trade partners, financial institutions, and the public, HomeAid has built more than 300 multi-unit shelters with an additional 29 in development. These shelters provide more than 6,600 beds per night nationwide. Each bed serves an average of three people per year.
HomeAid builds multi-unit shelters for homeless families and individuals, then donates them to charities such as Boys Hope Girls Hope, Mercy House, Salvation Army, Volunteers of America, YMCA, and others.
Most HomeAid housing serves people who are temporarily homeless due to circumstances beyond their control: job loss, natural disasters and other catastrophes, illness and medical problems, domestic violence, and more.
To be eligible for HomeAid housing, a charity must provide social services that enable families and individuals to move beyond their temporary situation, transform their lives, restore their self-worth, and regain self-sufficiency.
