HomeAid is a leading national nonprofit provider of housing and resources for people experiencing homelessness, operating through a network of 19 chapters in 13 states.


OUR MISSION

Our mission is building new lives for America’s homeless through housing and community outreach. 

OUR VISION 

We believe that everyone deserves the safety and comfort of home. 

OUR HISTORY

HomeAid was 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 Builders (NAHB).  In 1995, HomeAid America (HAA) was created to expand the effort throughout the country.  Since that time, HomeAid has expanded to 19 chapters and has inspired the building industry, the business community, governments, and volunteers to take action to help those in need.

OUR IMPACT

Celebrating “30 Years of Building the Way Home,” HomeAid has provided housing for more than 330,000 individuals who would have otherwise been homeless due to circumstances beyond their control, including:  

  • Abused children
  • Victims of domestic violence
  • At-risk teens
  • Returning military veterans
  • Those who are temporarily out of work
  • Victims of natural disasters and other catastrophes

Through the generosity of America's builders, their trade partners, financial institutions, and the public, HomeAid has built more than 550 shelter projects valued at more than $230 million, of which nearly 50 percent was donated in-kind by the building industry. These shelters provide more than 10,500 beds per night nationwide with each bed serving an average of three people per year.
