The Homeful Foundation joins HomeAid in the fight to end homelessness by generously awarding HomeAid Sacramento a $50,000 grant. The grant will help efforts to build and renovate temporary, transitional and permanent housing.
"We are humbled by this significant gift that will enable us to continue building hope for the greater Sacramento region's homeless children, families, women, men and veterans," said Beth Kang, Executive Director of HomeAid Sacramento. "Time and again our builders and their trade partners have proven to be one of our organization's most dedicated and generous supporters and partners. From their corporate and charitable leadership, families and friends, they have been all-in for HomeAid and we could not be more appreciative."
HomeAid Sacramento has earmarked the $50,000 grant to be used to support two projects:
The Taylor House, which seeks to develop a sense of independence for transitioning foster girls, from the ages of 18-24, by teaching them critical skills and providing them with affordable living accommodations.
Advocates for Mentally Ill Housing, an organization committed to ensuring Placer County residents experiencing mental illness receive the housing, employment, and supportive services they need.
The support given by the Homeful Foundation to HomeAid and their common goal to focus on emergency and temporary housing for those experiencing homelessness will go towards efforts to eliminate this crisis.
"The work that HomeAid is doing is part of the beginning of the end of homelessness in the Sacramento region, and the HomeFul Foundation is pleased to support this impactful organization's efforts," said Jeff Roos, President of the Homeful Foundation. "Homelessness is nothing short of a humanitarian crisis and we are firmly committed to supporting organizations that have the will and commitment to end it."
