Membership Benefits

Members have the opportunity to give back to the community by participating in service projects through HomeAid Atlanta, the HBA's designated charity. HomeAid's mission is to "build new lives" for homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach. HomeAid helps raise donations of services and materials and acts as a liaison between homeless service providers, builders, trade partners, and community volunteers. In addition, every HomeAid project supports agencies that provide services to help residents move toward self-sufficiency, such as education, job skills training, and physical and emotional support.
