What Is HomeAid Austin?

HomeAid Austin is a 501(c)(3) charity that identifies long-term, stable homeless care providers who need additional capacity and pairs them with our builders, vendors and suppliers, who donate their time, materials and labor to rehabilitate and build housing for Austin’s homeless. Our care provider partners serve:

•    Youth who have aged out of foster care
•    Women in crisis pregnancy
•    Victims of domestic violence and spousal desertion
•    Children who have become homeless due to a family crisis
•    Mentally challenged
•    Adults living with HIV/AIDS
•    Families and individuals who are homeless as a result of job loss or illness
•    Individuals and families suffering from drug and alcohol abuse
•    Veterans


HomeAid Austin serves as the housing developer and liaison between our homeless care providers, the community at large, volunteers, builders, remodelers and developers, and their suppliers and vendors.

Our Mission

HomeAid's mission is: "building new lives for America’s homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach." Although our mission gives us broad latitude to engage in building projects across the entire Continuum of Care, from emergency shelters to transitional housing to permanent supportive housing, every HomeAid project supports an agency that provides services that help residents move toward self-sufficiency, such as education and job skills training, physical and emotional support, etc.
