Since 1996, HomeAid Sacramento has completed 99 housing renovation and construction projects for local nonprofit and shelter provider partners. The end result of that work has led to improving the lives of thousands of individuals and families experiencing homelessness, survivors of domestic violence, teen mothers, abused and abandoned children, and homeless veterans. Historically, HomeAid provides 50% - 85% of the total cost of the construction project through in-kind donations of materials and labor. Dating back to our founding, the total retail value of our in-kind donations amounts to more than $7.8 million in materials and labor costs. These incredible savings allow service providers to free up financial resources to focus on changing lives and creating hope for a better future on behalf of our homeless neighbors.
