HomeAid Colorado brings together construction-industry professionals and affiliates to complete construction projects and provide critical resources to non-profit care providers who assist those in our community at a high risk of homelessness.
The local construction industry and our affiliates are a diverse and caring group that seeks to give back to the community that we love. By working together and pooling our resources we are able to provide critically needed resources and construction industry job training to local non-profits, allowing them to focus on individual care and support services.
Share the Warmth
Many in our community at high risk of homelessness, and those who are currently homeless, find themselves in need of basic essentials to stay safe and warm during the winter.
From October through November we work together to collect hats, gloves, scarves and socks in order to meet a critical need and provide the warmth of care and community to our most vulnerable neighbors.
The unfortunate reality is that 1 in 3 families nationwide struggle to afford diapers and often have to choose between purchasing food for their family and buying diapers for their baby. Diaper affordability is a national crisis, which is why HomeAid Colorado is working hard to help close the diaper gap and keep babies clean, dry, happy and healthy.
The Diaper Drive is held from Mother’s Day to Father’s Day, as we strive to collect 1.2 million diapers, 1 million baby wipes, and formula for low-income families.
Through a partnership with the Colorado Homebuilding Academy, the HomeAid WORKS Program provides construction training and job opportunities in the construction industry to people experiencing, at risk of, or exiting homelessness.
The HomeAid WORKS program provides the clients of our non-profit care provider partners with construction skills, career support and ultimately meaningful employment in the construction industry, increasing their likelihood of permanently exiting homelessness while addressing our community’s ongoing construction labor shortage.
Welcome Home Baskets
As grateful as temporarily homeless families are to move into a new home, it can be challenging to do so with very few resources. In order to make the move into a home as seamless as possible, HomeAid provides Welcome Home Baskets which include household goods, cleaning products, and hygiene items.
