HomeAid Atlanta and Jim Chapman Celebrate Family Promise Dedication

HomeAid Atlanta and home builder Jim Chapman celebrated the dedication of the Spring Street Affordable Home at Family Promise of Hall County. Through HomeAid Atlanta, Jim Chapman of Jim Chapman Communities provided a brand new modular home to Family Promise’s Next Step Program, a 90-day program that provides advisement, advocacy, and accountability for families seeking independence as they transition out of homelessness.

Following the ribbon cutting ceremony, visitors enjoyed an open house and met the home’s residents, who moved in that evening. The family of two adults, their five children, and a nephew had experienced severe financial hardships that led them to seek assistance from Family Promise. Lindsey McCamy, Family Promise Hall County Director explained, “This home will allow the family to save a portion of their rent while continuing to attend important financial classes throughout their stay. This will allow them several more months of learning and time to practice better budgeting skills before finding a more permanent home.”

Jim Chapman Communities’ beautiful, top-of-the line home was featured at the International Builders Show in Orlando this past January, prior to its relocation to Family Promise of Hall County. Design2Sell donated design services, furniture, and accessories to help welcome residents. Maytag, a national partner of HomeAid, generously donated appliances.
