OUR PROGRAM

How We Help

HomeAid connects the homebuilding community with organizations that serve individuals and families experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness. HomeAid enables the building community to give back by doing what they do best: create high-quality work in an efficient and cost-saving manner that is durable and modern. HomeAid’s builder partners often donate between30 and 100 percent of the costs of a project and they provide nonprofits with the necessary expertise to complete building projects efficiently. With this savings in construction and maintenance costs, nonprofits are then able to direct their resources toward helping those they serve attain self-sufficiency.

BUILDING COMMUNITY

More Than Just Construction

HomeAid aims to support the work of our nonprofit partners through other programs such as our annual Wolf Trap event, Project Playhouse, Care Days, Builders for Babies and Welcome Home Baskets. TheseCommunity Engagement programs help relieve the burden on nonprofitsby providing supplemental programs.

  • Homelessness in the National Capital Region

    Despite being one of the most affluent regions in the U. S., homelessness is a serious issue in the national capital region. Our region lacks the affordable housing needed to meet the demands of the people living in the area as well as the job market. With such a high cost of living even middle-income families may struggle to pay rent when facing a medical emergency or other unexpected expenses or life event. This means our firefighters and teachers are moving out further to more affordable areas. Additionally, poor credit, racial inequity, substance abuse, domestic violence, limited savings, and other barriers put rentals out of reach for many families and individuals. This type of instability also has a significant impact on children, often beginning the cycle of poverty and homelessness that is difficult to break.

  • Who We Help

    HomeAid works with dozens of nonprofits who assist the diverse array of individuals and families experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness, including victims of domestic violence, people with disabilities, those suffering from chronic physical or mental health issues, veterans, and children and teens. Through these organizations and programs, lives are changed. The community benefits from the services and shelter space these organizations provide, such as helping those experiencing homelessness return to the workforce and ensuring that families remain together to become the building blocks of strong communities.
