Holiday Wishes from HomeAid Northern California
During the holidays, we look forward to spending time with family and friends with holiday visions of sitting around a warm fireplace creating special memories.  Imagine if you and your family did not have a place to sleep at night and had to search for shelter or get on a waiting list for a bed.  

At HomeAid, we continue to partner with service providers who have little funding for new and remodeled shelters and instead focus their precious resources on food and services for the Bay Area homeless.  Because of your support, we can do what we do best and build the shelters and facilities to house and help the Bay Area homeless.  

Thank you to our Hundreds of Volunteers!
5 Care Days, Essentials and Toy Drives completed thanks to you!
Volunteers like you contributed time and labor to complete essential maintenance at HomeAid shelters including Mission Solano, FESCO, Teen Challenge and Shelter, Inc.  This last year, thousands of baby diapers and baby essentials were collected and donated as well as hundreds of toys for the children in our shelters.  We partnered with Sentinels of Freedom to complete the 2nd Veteran's Resource Center at the College of Alameda.  

Thank you Bank of America for sponsoring our Essentials Drive and thank you to the companies who stepped up for Care Days and Projects including Miller Starr Regalia, SAP, PG&E, Dahlin Group, KTGY Group, Richmond American and CalAtlantic Homes!
