HO M e a ID at L a N ta Spring Brings New Life and new Projects to Help rebuild lives through HomeAid Atlanta thanks to support from members of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, the first half of 2016 has been busy for HomeAid Atlanta as the organization continues to build new lives for Atlanta's homeless families and individuals. In February, HomeAid partnered with Sherwin-Williams' Pro Painters Institute Painter Training Program for a special week-long HomeAid Care Day event. Volunteers brought bold color to the walls at Solomon's Temple, an Atlanta organization providing transitional housing to women and children. This was the first of approximately 10 HomeAid Atlanta Care Days planned for this year. In March, HomeAid received a $25,000 donation from legendary Atlanta home builder John Wieland at his annual Good Friday breakfast at the Mansour Center in Marietta. At the end of April, HomeAid held its 15th Annual Essentials Drive to collect baby items for homeless babies and their mothers in honor of Mother's Day. This year's Essentials Drive was supported by more than 30 Atlanta businesses and organizations. Thousands of diapers, baby wipes, and baby formula were collected and distributed in partnership with UPS to Atlanta nonprofits serving homeless families just before Mother's Day. Also this spring, HomeAid announced that a new project 22 suMMer 2016 | AtlAntA Building news will soon be underway. Clifton Sanctuary Ministries, an Atlanta shelter serving homeless men through emergency shelter, transitional housing, and programs including case management, support groups, and counseling, is in need of renovation. Work on the shelter will begin later this year and will include total renovations to both the emergency shelter and transitional facilities. In May, HomeAid reached the final stages of construction on two major build projects. John Cooper of Cooper Homes led the construction of a new eight-unit apartment building and renovations on the community center at Phoenix Pass in Conyers to serve homeless women and children in Rockdale County. Additionally, HomeAid's first veterans-only project is almost ready. Brian Canady of BBC Builders led the total renovation of a southwest Atlanta home for nonprofit Jesus Set the Captive Free. This house will allow six formerly incarcerated veterans to move in and rebuild their lives. HomeAid Atlanta's mission is to build new lives for Atlanta's homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach.
