HomeAid Model

HomeAid operates based on a simple, proven model - an easy, three step process:




Identify and select a successful, community Service Provider (homeless service agency) that seeks construction services to expand the capacity of their facility, through building a new facility or renovating an existing facility.


Recruit a volunteer Builder Captain who manages the construction of the facility and assists in securing trade partners (plumbers, carpenters, painters, electricians, etc.) to provide in-kind labor, materials or services.

This team works together to build or renovate the facility, with a goal of serving a larger number of homeless children, women and men. When complete, the facility is owned and operated by the Service Provider.

The key to HomeAid Sacramento's success is leveraging in-kind donations of building materials and labor from professional builders and their trade partners to multiply the impact of every cash donation received. This allows HomeAid Sacramento to build transitional housing with minimal cash, enabling Service Providers to focus their limited resources on helping homeless families and individuals regain lives of self-sufficiency.

Every dollar invested in HomeAid Sacramento results in an average of $3 of in-kind labor and materials.
