On March 10, 2017, HomeAid and home builder Jim Chapman of Jim Chapman Communities celebrated the dedication of the Spring Street Affordable Home at Family Promise of Hall County. Through HomeAid Atlanta, Jim Chapman provided a new modular home to Family Promise’s Next Step Program, a 90-day program that provides advisement, advocacy, and accountability for families seeking independence as they transition out of homelessness.
