20 years ago, a group of Bay Area home builders formed our local chapter of HomeAid Northern California with the mission to rebuild the lives of the Bay Area's homeless by doing what they do best - to build housing.  As I search through the archives for photos and HomeAid project stories, I am incredibly moved by the generosity of this industry to give back and help those in need.

HomeAid has completed 45 shelter projects in the last 20 years, saving our service provider partners over $11 million in costs to build and remodel.  Our HomeAid shelters have provided housing for over 8,000 homeless individuals and we could not have accomplished this without your continued support. 

We still have so much work to do, so please consider making a donation to HomeAid today - or join us at our 20th Anniversary Celebration on March 29th, 2019.

Claire's House Dedication with Signature Homes
On January 8, 2019, HomeAid and Catholic Charities held the dedication of Claire's House, a safe house for girls who are trafficked.  Claire's House provides residential care in a safe environment of genuine love, hope, and healing.  
 Because of the commitment of Signature Homes and our trade partners, we were able to save over $360,000 in project costs AND provide donations of furniture, light fixtures and funding of an additional $130,000!
