Homelessness is not a choice. It's not an identity. It is not a failure to work. It is a circumstance... and it is ongoing, affecting many different types of people in our community.
HomeAid Houston, a charitable 501(c)(3) non-profit organization sponsored by the Greater Houston Builders Association, identifies long term, stable homeless care providers who need additional capacity and pairs them with GHBA builders, remodelers, vendors and suppliers who donate their time, materials and labor to help build hope and homes for the homeless.
