HomeAid Atlanta, the designated charity of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, is a non-profit organization that builds new lives for homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach. This summer was exceptionally busy for HomeAid as the organization completed several build and Care Day projects.

Making A Way Housing: On July 19, HomeAid Atlanta and Brock Built Homes celebrated the completed renovation of an apartment building with a ribbon cutting and dedication program at Making A Way Housing. This project added 16 new beds to the facility, which provides emergency, transitional, and permanent supportive housing and case management to homeless adults. Steve Brock of Brock Built Homes served as volunteer Builder Captain for this project.

House of Dawn: On July 20, HomeAid Atlanta broke ground at House of Dawn in Jonesboro on a new project to help build new lives for young and expectant mothers experiencing homelessness. Doug Cotter, in partnership with Silverstone Communities, will serve as HomeAid Atlanta’s volunteer Builder Captain to double the capacity at House of Dawn’s Transitional Housing Program.
