About HomeAid San Diego

Related Special Reports

HomeAid San Diego is the local chapter of HomeAid America, a national organization that is the largest builder of transitional housing for the temporarily homeless in the United States. HomeAid’s mission is “to build dignified housing where homeless families and individuals can rebuild their lives.” HomeAid San Diego is unique among nonprofits in that it partners with other nonprofits to build facilities, from which they provide social services to help the temporarily homeless move beyond their homeless situation, restore their self-worth and regain self-sufficiency.

HomeAid San Diego has been building transitional housing for the temporarily homeless in San Diego since 2002, when the chapter was first formed by leaders of San Diego’s real estate and building community. Through partnerships with local nonprofits that provide services for the city’s temporarily homeless citizens and with San Diego’s building industry, HomeAid San Diego facilitates the building of permanent multi-unit housing where homeless families and individuals participate in programs to help them get back on their feet to again become productive members of the community. The organization’s association with the real estate industry and nonprofit service providers is truly a collaborative partnership of giving and serving those most in need.

The key to HomeAid’s success is leveraging local and national real estate and product connections for in-kind donations of time, talent and materials. HomeAid’s depth of resources helps the nonprofit navigate the unfamiliar territory of entitlement, zoning, permits, financing and construction for a project. And real estate partners have the opportunity to “give back” using what they know and do best -- providing real estate solutions -- to assist those in need of a helping hand. HomeAid San Diego’s building model is unparalleled in the nonprofit world in terms of return on investment and increasing the retail value of finished housing projects.

To date, HomeAid San Diego has proudly completed nine projects. The nonprofit partners team with leading builders in San Diego to build these permanent legacies of hope in our community that provide transitional services for the temporarily homeless:
