Home Builders Care Foundation

Building New Lives for those who are homeless.

HBCF’s program brand in the District

HomeAid Washington DC

In 2007, HomeAid America partnered with the Home Builders Care Foundation to open its 20th chapter in Washington, D.C.   HomeAid is a nationally-branded non-profit organization whose mission aligns with  HBCF.  Most HBCF projects undertaken in the District are under our HomeAid DC brand.

Similar to the in-kind construction program of Home Builders Care, HomeAid's mission is "to build dignified housing where homeless families and individuals can rebuild their lives." The addition of HomeAid, its resources and national partners, allows HBCF to more fully serve the homeless and supportive housing needs of the Washington region and the District specifically.

According to the latest results of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments 2013 Homeless Enumeration Report, 11,547 people in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area are homeless, including people who are living on the streets, staying in shelters or living in transitional (or temporary) housing. Of these individuals and persons in families, 6,865 (approximately 59%) are in the District of Columbia.

How HomeAid Works

The HomeAid program works similarly to the Home Builders Care Foundation's charitable construction program. HomeAid acts as bridge between homeless care providers who need new or remodeled housing program facilities and the home building community. Typically, HomeAid is able to help the care provider build or renovate their property - for about half of what it would normally cost.

The Four Steps of HomeAid's Model Housing Development Program

  1. After careful review, a local Care Provider's shelter-related project is adopted by the chapter
  2. The chapter recruits a Builder Captain to help spearhead the project
  3. The Builder Captain, with assistance from the chapter, secures donated labor, materials and related construction development services from trade partners
  4. The HomeAid team builds new or renovates the housing facility for the care provider.
