HomeAid is a nonprofit organization that builds new lives for families and individuals experiencing homelessness through housing and community outreach and has been working in the greater Seattle metropolitan community since 2001. HomeAid serves as a housing developer and liaison between homeless service providers, the community at large, volunteers, builders, remodelers and developers and their suppliers and vendors.
HomeAid believes that a home is everything. For those struggling with homelessness, removing the uncertainty and stress of finding a place to sleep at night means that they can focus on dealing with the issues that caused them to be homeless in the first place. The best way to end homelessness is to ensure that everyone has a safe and stable place to call home.
Our mission gives us broad latitude to engage in building projects across the entire continuum of care, from emergency shelters and transitional housing to permanent/supportive housing. Every HomeAid project offers support services such as education and job skills training, physical and emotional support that help residents move toward self-sufficiency.
HomeAid works in partnership with the building industry, as well as community-building organizations, to assist people experiencing homelessness. To date, HomeAid's overall work in Seattle has completed over 36 housing, remodel and care day projects at locations that serve families, individuals, victims of domestic violence, teen mothers, veterans, and more. This work has garnered more than $5.3 million in in-kind donations from our building industry expertise in professional services, labor, and materials to end homelessness. This generous donation allows organizations to allocate their scarce resources on programming and interventions to work toward sustainably ending homelessness.
