At the heart of our charity is the desire to build dignified housing where homeless families and individuals can regain hope and achieve healing. It is through the generosity of our builders, remodelers, vendors and trades that the HomeAid vision is realized, as beautiful buildings are built or remodeled, with the help of their donated labor and materials.
HomeAid, a leading national provider of housing and resources for the homeless, partnered with Taylor Morrison, a leading national builder and developer, to build an emergency drop-in center in Austin for survivors of exploitation and trafficking. Approximately 79,000 minors and youth are victims of sex trafficking in Texas. The new center remodeled by HomeAid Builder Captain, Taylor Morrison, is now an entry point where survivors of trafficking can rest, get one-on-one counseling in a safe environment and meet with peers going through the same situation. In the past, SAFE, Stop Abuse for Everyone, has served the local community for approximately 17 hours a week. With the new center, SAFE is now able to help local survivors by providing between 40 and 50 hours of service each week.
