Membership Benefits
Members have the opportunity to give back to the community through HomeAid Atlanta, the designated charity of the GAHBA. HomeAid's mission is to "build new lives" for homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach, and they accomplish this by acting as a liaison between homeless service providers and the building industry. GAHBA members can get involved by volunteering for build projects and care days or donating supplies and funds.
