Newland Communities announced its continued support for HomeAid America
Newland Communities recently became the founding sponsor of a new program HomeAid on Wheels (HOW). Newland Communities has been a supporter of HomeAid America since 2007 and has raised more than $600,000 to benefit the homeless in diverse communities all across America. With funding from Cisco Systems and an anonymous Foundation, and Founding Sponsor, Newland Communities, HomeAid's new program, HOW, will assist communities without a HomeAid chapter to build shelters for the homeless using local resources.
More than 2.5 million Americans are homeless each year. HomeAid's HOW program will enable us to increase our delivery of dignified housing where homeless families and individuals can rebuild their lives. HomeAid believes the impact of this program will provide an avenue for our organization to help even thousands more in need.
"We see HOW as a means of expanding the HomeAid program in order to help thousands more people get back on their feet to lead self-sufficient lives" said Teri Slavik-Tsuyuki, with Newland Communities, "and we are proud of our long-term support of HomeAid, the nation's leading developer of transitional housing for the homeless. In today's economy, there are many children and families who are finding themselves temporarily homeless and in need of help to get back on their feet. Through the HOW program, we can continue our efforts to help those less fortunate."
In addition, Newland Communities' employees participate in HomeAid activities as board/committee members and as volunteers at local HomeAid Chapters. Newland employees bring their professional and personal expertise to HomeAid Chapters by providing resources to projects in the areas of land acquisition, pre-development and marketing and public relations. They serve as counselors to the young, advisors to the needy and experts to the disadvantaged. The result of their local involvement has highly impacted our core Shelter Development program, so that many more homeless families can have safe places to live.
