Homeaid Atlanta
On June 8, HomeAid Atlanta brought volunteers from Overhead Door Company of Atlanta to the future site of The Drake Closet’s Alpharetta location. The Drake Closet is a women’s clothing boutique benefitting The Drake House, which provides housing and education programs for homeless single mothers in north metro Atlanta. In addition to volunteering, Overhead Door donated funds for the project, and BMC, Budget Dumpster, L&W Supply, and Atlanta Glass & Mirror donated building materials. The donations of labor and materials provided a savings of approximately $6,000 for The Drake Closet!
On June 14, HomeAid led a Care Day at 4Sarah in Conyers with GAHBA members Green River Builders, Brand Vaughan Lumber Co., New American Funding, and several other groups. A huge amount of work was completed by these volunteers at 4Sarah, a faith-based nonprofit whose mission is to empower change in the life direction of women and girls seeking to exit the adult entertainment and/or sex trafficking industries.
On June 8, HomeAid Builder Captain Brock Built was named Partner of the Year at Making A Way Housing's Third Annual Casino Night Gala. In 2018, Brock Built volunteered with HomeAid to oversee the total renovation of Making A Way's eight-unit apartment building, providing homes for 16 homeless adults facing complex challenges associated with chronic homelessness, substance abuse, mental illness, and HIV/AIDS.
