HomeAid San Diego, one of 22 chapters of HomeAid America, Inc., was founded in March 2002 with the support of local building and real estate industry organizations. HomeAid San Diego partners with the real estate industry and other San Diego nonprofits to build multi-unit housing that serve temporarily homeless families and individuals in the community. HomeAid San Diego has proudly completed 8 projects that house high school foster youth, foster youth who have transitioned out of the foster care system, abused women and their children, veterans, women over 50, seniors, and abused and neglected children. Founded in 1989, HomeAid is the nation’s largest provider of housing for the temporarily homeless. Through the generosity of America’s builders, their trade partners, financial institutions and private and public donors, HomeAid has built more than 175 shelter facilities around the country, with an additional 52 projects in development. These projects total nearly 1,000,000 square feet of space representing more than $130 million in project construction costs, of which $77.4 million has been donated by the building industry. To date, more than 100,000 people have received shelter and services in HomeAid built facilities.
