HomeAid Care Day Builder Leaders Needed

HomeAid Atlanta is seeking a couple of builders, or capable leaders from their team, to help organize and lead a care day with HomeAid. HomeAid Care Days are one-day events with volunteer recruitment at a transitionally homeless service provider facility.

As a care day project leader, the builder visits a shelter provider location and reviews the list of potential projects for the one-day event. The project leader helps decide what projects we can complete based on the volunteer skill base, comes up with a materials list, gets some material donations (if possible), and leads the volunteers during the event, with assistance from HomeAid staff. HomeAid finds the location, handles volunteer recruitment, provides insurance for volunteers, lunch for the event, marketing, and follow-up.

Please contact Jean Hilyard if you are interested in leading a care day and we will talk further.

The Great American Housing Fiasco: An Inside View of the Mortgage Crisis - ON SALE!!

Never in the history of our nation has there been a collapse of the housing industry like the one that began in 2007. Not even in the depths of the Great Depression did we experience such devastation and deflation of value in residential real estate. It has been an unparalleled catastrophe that has mired the national economy in a serious recession with an uncertain, prolonged recovery.


In The Great American Housing Fiasco, real estate veteran Hugh Morton gives a unique view from the trenches of what actually caused the current economic calamity and the many missteps that have made it so unnecessarily worse. The author reveals how well-intended but misguided housing initiatives started in the 1990s during the Clinton Administration was the true genesis of our problems. In an easy, reader-friendly style, he gives an unbiased revelation of the many culprits who helped to create and prolong the current economic nightmare.
