Community Engagement

The homes and shelter facilities we build and renovate are beautiful, welcoming, and comforting, but they are missing some of the most basic items that a person needs to recover from homelessness and get back on their feet. Filling refrigerators with much-needed food or homes with new kitchen utensils and bathroom supplies is just one way that your volunteering efforts can make a positive difference in someone’s life.

  • Builders for Babies Diaper Drive

    Volunteerism and collection drives often surge around the winter holidays, and with feedback from our non-profit partners, we are shifting our annual Builders for Babies diaper and wipes drive to the weeks between Mother’s Day (May 14th) and Father’s Day (June 18th). This change will ensure that we align with a time when our partners are both in critical need of supplies and when they have the capacity to store them. We know we can reach our goal of 50,000 diapers and wipes with the help of our generous community! Here’s how you can get involved:

    • Organize a diaper and wipe drive; we can help you with collection boxes and promotional flyers
    • Shop our Amazon wishlist, which will ship directly to our HomeAid National Capital Region office.
    • Schedule a time between June 19-22, 2023, to drop off donations at our office at 3684 Centerview Drive, Suite 110B
      Chantilly, VA 20151.
    • Print and share our flyer
    • Like, comment, and share our social media posts.

    Contributing items like diapers and wipes are vitally important anytime, but with prices rising as supply issues continue, there’s no better time than now to help! Unfortunately, diapers and wipes cannot be purchased using Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or Women, Infants, and Children (WIC).

  • Welcome Baskets

    HomeAid National Capital Region builds and renovates housing and shelters for the homeless. While our finished projects provide safety and stability for people who were once homeless, they are missing many of the basic items that you and I take for granted – towels, sheets, pots, pans, dishes, and everything else needed for a happy home.

    1. Sign-up your workplace, neighborhood association, or any other group to put together one or more Welcome Home Baskets for the families and individuals moving out of homelessness and into a new home or shelter residence.
    2. Hold your drive for a month, collecting these basic items in a large basket or box.
    3. Drop them off or call us to pick them up! In some cases, we can provide your group the opportunity to tour the home or facility when the project is complete, and deliver the Welcome Home Baskets in person.

    For more information on how to participate, please contact Julianna Blaylock at 703.953.3529.

  • Care Days

    Care Days are hands-on volunteer service days during which volunteers come together to give back to a local HomeAid nonprofit partner by landscaping, organizing, and cleaning. If your company is interested in hosting a Care Day, please contact Julianna Blaylock at 703.953.3529.

  • Project Playhouse

    Project Playhouse is a unique opportunity for builders to partner with HomeAid to construct and donate custom-built playhouses for our nonprofit partners serving youth. Children need a dedicated space of their own where they can create, imagine and explore with their peers. HomeAid believes every child deserves a place to run around and be kids despite their housing circumstances.

    In need of a custom playhouse or ready to build a custom playhouse? Contact Julianna Blaylock at 703.953.3529
