HomeAid builds homes. All Americans deserve safe, stable and dignified housing. For those experiencing homelessness, we provide a place to call home and an opportunity to build second chances.
HomeAid partners with local homebuilders, trade partners and homeless services providers to build housing for the homeless. By leveraging our relationships within the home building industry to garner in-kind donations of labor and materials, we are able to build and maintain homes, apartments and shelters for reputable nonprofit organizations who provide housing and services to the homeless. This collaboration allows nonprofit care providers to focus their energy and resources on providing direct services, like financial education, job skills training, and counseling while home builders provide the construction-related services needed to build high quality housing and at a fraction of the typical cost.
Having a place to live is a basic need for everyone. People need safe and stable housing before they can focus on receiving the training, counseling and any other assistance they need in order to get back on their feet. In addition to providing safe, stable and dignified housing, all HomeAid projects provide the support services needed to acquire the life and job skills necessary to regain self-sufficiency and hope.
HomeAid's Tiny Homes Project is complete with the construction of 6 tiny homes for people experiencing homelessness.
If HomeAid Northern California offers to help your nonprofit build or remodel a housing project, Rev. Dana Bainbridge of San Jose has some advice for you.
