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.

Carole Brady came to HomeAid from Family Promise of Lake Houston in Humble, Texas. She began working with homeless families and children in 1998, opening her first Network in Loveland Colorado. In addition, she became part of the National Training Team working directly with new networks across the country. After six years, Carole took the position of Mid-Atlantic Regional Director for National Family Promise in Philadelphia. With the desire to once again work one-on-one with Network families, Carole accepted the position as ED of IHN of the Main Line (an affiliate program of Family Promise) and was there until 2009. She developed and trained a network of Directors throughout the U.S., and designed programs such as Real Life…Life Skills Classes, Fast Track GED’s, Higher Education opportunities and a combined budgeting program that helped build financial security and education for homeless families. These classes are currently being taught at many of the Family Promise sites. As part of her responsibilities, Carole will be identifying new HomeAid construction projects with homeless care providers and working with the builder captains through the project's conclusion, expanding HomeAid's message to new audiences, and working with the HomeAid Board of Directors and leading the HomeAid staff. Carole lives in Kingwood, TX with her dog Isla – who works two days a week as a therapy dog for the homeless children in the Family Promise Network.
