HomeAid Announces National Partnership with Woodside Homes

HomeAid America announces a national partnership with Woodside Homes, one of the leading regional homebuilders in the West, with operations in 4 states.

Woodside, which has been involved with HomeAid and its chapters, will now be a Silver Level National Partner to support HomeAid's Shelter Development Program. The objective is to build housing and other facilities for homelessness service providers and undertake community outreach activities to provide facility renovation or operational assistance for the programs of these service providers. Jay Moss, Woodside's CMO, will join HomeAid America's board of directors.

"I am honored to be a part of this organization and look forward to the meaningful contributions we can make in communities throughout America. Woodside Homes is a service-minded company, and we hope to use the resources we have available to extend a hand to those who need shelter," said Jay Moss.

"We are extremely excited to have Woodside join HomeAid as a national partner as we do our best to fight homelessness in this country," said HomeAid CEO Peter Simons. "As they are based in Salt Lake City, where we are attempting to create a new HomeAid chapter, they will be a key partner in that effort. Having Jay join our Board is an added bonus as his experience and industry knowledge will be a great benefit to us."
