This year marks the 30th Anniversary of HomeAid in our mission to build new lives for homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach. Founded in 1989 by the Orange County chapter of the Building Industry Association of Southern California (BIA/SC), an affiliate of the National Association of Home Builder (NAHB), HomeAid has expanded throughout the country as a national pioneer in providing housing and services for the homeless. Through the years, HomeAid has inspired the building industry, business community, governments and volunteers to take action to help those in need.
HomeAid currently has 18 chapters in 12 states, with plans to add more. HomeAid works with leading builders in America to build and renovate housing for nonprofits helping the homeless. Through the generosity of these builders, their trade partners, financial institutions, and the public, HomeAid has built more than 550 housing projects valued at more than $230 million, adding 10,500 beds for the homeless. Since HomeAid’s founding in 1989, these beds have helped over 330,000 people while they reclaim their lives.
In our 30th year, we will be spotlighting HomeAid’s growth and successes throughout the year to help raise awareness of the critical issue of homelessness, as well as celebrate the builders, donors, volunteers and others who have helped us address it.
