Our Building Model

Aligned with local builders and homeless service providers, HomeAid Sacramento has created a seamless approach to building housing projects and providing services for the region's homeless. Our BUILD and CARES Committee identifies and prioritizes building projects based on need and the sustainability of our nonprofit partners.

Once a project and location are approved, a Builder Captain is chosen to manage all aspects of the renovation construction process.The Builder Captain secures trade donors such as carpenters, plumbers, insulators and roofers, to provide labor, materials and other services. Complementing this work, HomeAid raises limited funding for building projects through corporate and individual donations.

Once the project is complete, HomeAid Sacramento turns the finished building projects over to the nonprofit shelter operate. Our building model offers local shelter providers a way to conserve scarce operating dollars for direct service programs to benefit those in need.

Our building model allows homeless Shelter providers to do what they do best -- helping families and individuals move from a point of crisis toward self-sufficiency.
