HomeAid Announces National Partnership with Metrostudy


Support to be given to Homelessness Service Providers

 
Newport Beach CA – January 11, 2018 – HomeAid America, a building industry charity and one of the nation’s largest builders of housing for the homeless, announced today a national partnership with Metrostudy, a Hanley Wood Company, a leading provider of data and analysis tools for the residential construction and real estate marketplace.
 
Metrostudy will serve as a Gold Level National Partner to HomeAid, who’s Shelter Development Program builds housing and other facilities for homelessness service providers and undertakes community outreach activities to provide facility renovation or operational assistance for the programs of these service providers. David MacIntosh, Chief Revenue Officer of Metrostudy, will join HomeAid America’s board of directors.
 
“Hanley Wood and Metrostudy are committed to addressing the crisis of homelessness in the United States,” said Peter Goldstone, CEO of Hanley Wood. “HomeAid’s work with homeless individuals and families has been fantastic and it’s a privilege for us to join with them to add our industry expertise and relationships to their efforts to eradicate homelessness across the country. We look forward to working with them for years to come.”
