Established in 2002, HomeAid San Diego is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to building multi-unit housing for San Diego’s temporarily homeless men, women and children. The organization is supported by an alliance of local building and real estate industry organizations.
Under the leadership of Builder Captains, HomeAid San Diego develops projects with the support of trade partners and volunteers. Once they are completed, professional service providers take up the baton by providing services that help residents regain strength and purpose in a safe environment.
“To play a vital role in the elimination of homelessness.”
“To build dignified housing where homeless families and individuals can rebuild their lives.”
Research indicates that more than 80 percent of the total homeless population is women, children and families that experience a life-altering event (e.g. job loss, natural disaster, foreclosure, divorce abuse or medical condition) that drives them to homelessness.
Typically these temporary or transitional homeless individuals and families merely need a second chance to get their feet back on the ground, attain self-sufficiency, and move quickly toward acquiring some sort of permanent housing.
Through the generosity of builders, their trade partners, and our donors and supporters, HomeAid San Diego builds multi-unit housing for this temporary homeless population, then donates the housing to charities such as Child Abuse Prevention Foundation, Catholic Charities, Interfaith Family Services, New Alternatives and others, for them to operate. These charities provide social services that enable residents to move beyond their temporary situation and transform their lives.
In just a few years, HomeAid San Diego has built nine projects with outstanding builders acting as Builder Captains and hundreds of local companies donating critical materials and services.
HomeAid San Diego’s projects benefit at-risk youth, women, and children fleeing domestic violence; temporarily homeless women over 50; and veterans, seniors, and disabled individuals. These homes have served more than 300 temporarily homeless individuals. Over $3 million of in-kind labor and donated materials have been generated, fully 93 percent of total project costs. The total value of completed projects and those in process is greater than $15 million.
