HomeAid, a nonprofit that links building professionals with charities to help build housing for individuals and families in need across the United States has launched HomeAid Los Angeles.
According to prnewswire.com, homelessness has reached epidemic proportions in the California city with an estimated 50,000 people living on the streets. HomeAid is joining the effort in combating homelessness in L.A. with the hopes of substantially decreasing the number of people without a roof over their head.
HomeAid LA will work in tandem with the Building Industry Association of Southern California-Los Angeles/Ventura Chapter, with whom they will share offices. Initial funding for HomeAid LA will come from HomeAid America and a grant from the Lennar Charitable Housing Foundation. Additional funding will be raised via a fundraising event hosted by Kennedy Wilson at its Beverly Hills headquarters on October 13th.
