HomeAid was founded in 1989 by the Orange County chapter of the Building Industry Association of Southern California, an affiliate of the National Association of Home Builders. Since that time, HomeAid has expanded throughout the country and now has 20 chapters in 13 states. The organization allows home builders an opportunity to do what they do best (build homes) to help make a difference in the lives of the temporarily homeless.
The Colorado chapter joined the HomeAid effort in late 1999 and is making a notable impact on homelessness in our state. As of January 2013 we have built 43 housing units, with 275 beds, representing more than $3.5 million of in-kind contributions of labor and materials from the building industry to serve Colorado’s homeless.
