HomeAid Atlanta is a nonprofit organization that builds and renovates housing and related facilities for organizations that serve families and individuals experiencing homelessness. While the full economic impact of COVID-19 is yet to be determined, low-income renters have been hit the hardest. HomeAid Atlanta anticipates a much greater need for housing in the coming months and is currently working on four major projects to provide homes for people experiencing homelessness in metro Atlanta. In addition to its construction, HomeAid recently wrapped up its Essentials Drive, an annual drive to collect diapers and wipes for families experiencing homeless with young children. Over 50,000 baby items were collected and distributed to 23 metro Atlanta organizations that provide housing and services for families in need. In July, HomeAid volunteers packed 500 hygiene kits for distribution from the Atlanta Community Food Bank, to fill the gap for much needed hygiene items among homeless and low-income populations.
