HomeAid Atlanta’s 2016 Accomplishments

HomeAid Atlanta’s mission is to build new lives for Atlanta’s homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach. Thanks to the generous support of Georgia’s home builders and associates, HomeAid Atlanta made great strides in building new lives for Metro Atlanta’s homeless in 2016. Here are just a few of HomeAid’s many accomplishments:

Thanks to the help of Builder Captain, John Cooper of Cooper Homes, a new eight-unit apartment building was completed in late summer at Phoenix Pass in Conyers, an organization serving homeless mothers and their children. The new apartment building allows Phoenix Pass to double its capacity to serve the homeless in the Conyers/Rockdale area.

With the help of Builder Captain, Brian Canady of BBC Builders, a renovation of a home for Jesus Set the Captive Free, an organization working to transform the lives of homeless veterans, is in the final stages. This project will provide transitional housing for six formerly incarcerated veterans working to rebuild their lives.

More than 130,000 baby items were collected and donated to homeless babies and their moms during the 2016 Essentials Drive.
The Professional Women in Building helped to collect nearly $20,000 worth of furniture and housewares to provide to HomeAid built shelter residents through the Stock the House Drive.

Bank of America made it possible for 1,200 HomeAid CareKits, hygiene kits filled with sought after necessities including shampoo and toothpaste, to be assembled and donated to Atlanta’s homeless veterans and others.

Through build projects and Care Days, in 2016 HomeAid provided a savings of $405,000+ to providers of transformational housing and services to Atlanta’s homeless!

What’s in store for 2017? Get involved and be a part of it! You can help build new lives for Atlanta’s homeless families and individuals through a HomeAid Sponsorship, assisting with an upcoming build project or HomeAid Care Day, or collecting Essentials or Stock the House items.
