The Inland Empire takes critical steps in responding to homeless needs
HomeAid Inland Empire consists of both Riverside and San Bernardino counties. Estimates for Riverside County's homeless population may be as high as 20,000 individuals, at some point each year. A 1997 San Bernardino County study estimated that about 3% of the county population, about 56,000 people, will experience homelessness in 2006.

HomeAid Inland Empire represents the merger of two chapters: HomeAid Riverside and HomeAid San Bernardino. Both HomeAid operations and sponsoring Building Industry Association (BIA) chapters operate under the auspices of the Building Industry Association of Southern California.

Because the counties are contiguous, many of the area's builders and their trade partners do business throughout the entire Inland Empire region. With a streamlined organization, greater coordination for available resources will provide opportunities for involvement to a greater number of BIA members.

HomeAid Inland Empire and the building industry have a long history of effective and dedicated community service, with more than a dozen completed shelter projects serving this region's temporarily homeless men, women, and children.

Real People. Real Results.
"I don't know where I would be right now if I hadn't gone to Olive Crest. I would probably be living on the streets... I can't believe so many people would care enough about kids like me to build us a place like this." - Recent resident of Olive Crest's Inland Community Children's Ranch

"The Baldy View BIA's HomeAid San Bernardino [now HomeAid Inland Empire] program has been a great asset to our local communities. The Turning Point project, in particular, is assisting young men at risk in developing character and practical skills to become productive members of their society. We are extremely proud of our BIA members and all those who have helped make this project a reality."
- Jonathan Weldy, Vice President of Development, Communities Southwest
