HomeAid Puget Sound’s model is to build, remodel and maintain dignified housing. From emergency shelters to transitional housing to permanent supportive housing, every HomeAid Puget Sound project includes support services that help residents move toward self-sufficiency, such as education, job skills training, financial education, counseling and other support.
HomeAid Puget Sound builds housing for homeless families and individuals, and then donates it to a partnering nonprofit care provider who serves the homeless.
HomeAid Puget Sound provides construction-related technical assistance as well as in-kind labor and materials from the building industry, which allows our partners to focus their energy and resources on providing direct services to the homeless while we take care of construction.
When the project is completed, the care provider owns and operates the housing and provides the support services that enable residents to get back on their feet. HomeAid Puget Sound housing serves people who are temporarily homeless due to circumstances beyond their control: job loss, natural disasters and other catastrophes, illness and medical problems, domestic violence, and more. Each unit helps multiple people over time; as a family graduates from the program and moves on to a self-sufficient life, a new family in need moves in and benefits from the home. It’s the gift that keeps on giving!
