HomeAid Atlanta: Building New Lives
HomeAid’s Project Playhouse is back! One playhouse “The Saltbox of the Earth,” will be raffled off to a lucky winner this holiday season. Visit www.homeaidatlanta.orgto find out how you can win.

2018 has been HomeAid Atlanta’s biggest year to date, and late summer and early fall were busy as ever with Care Days, a new renovation project, and the return of Project Playhouse.

Ryan Swallow of South Haven Builders is serving as volunteer Builder Captain for the final phase of construction at The Drake Village, part of Roswell’s The Drake House. In June of this year, Builder Captain Dan O’Dwyer of O’Dwyer Properties completed major exterior renovations on both eight-unit apartment buildings that make up The Drake Village, as well as interior renovations on one of the buildings. Now, South Haven Builders will provide interior upgrades for the second building. This renovation is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2018, making The Drake Village completely move-in ready for eight more families to have a home in time for the holidays.

HomeAid Atlanta’s signature event, Project Playhouse, which features unique child-sized playhouses, is back! One custom-built playhouse will be raffled off this holiday season, and funds raised will support HomeAid’s mission to build new lives for homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach. Visit www.homeaidatlanta.org for details.
