What do we do?

Research indicates that more than 80 percent of the total homeless population is women, children, and families that experience a life-altering event (e.g., job loss, natural disaster, divorce, abuse, or medical condition) that drives them to homelessness.

Typically, these situationally homeless individuals and families merely need a second chance to get their feet back on the ground, attain self-sufficiency, and move quickly toward acquiring some sort of permanent housing.

HomeAid America creates and supports local chapters, giving them the tools to build shelter projects for this homeless population, then donates the housing to charities such as the Boys Hope Girls Hope, Mercy House, Salvation Army, Volunteers of America, and others for them to operate. To be eligible to receive a HomeAid home, the charity must provide social services that enable residents to transform their lives and move towards self-sufficiency.

HomeAid chapters build and donate shelters to charities that understand the needs of their local homeless population and employ the model that best works for them and their community. Regardless of which model is used, HomeAid performs rigorous due diligence to ensure the charity can achieve the positive outcomes for which a HomeAid home is being donated.
