HomeAid Northern Virginia partners with many of the area’s top homebuilders to renovate and build housing for Northern Virginia’s homeless. Builder Captains provide the leadership and direction to complete a project envisioned by the shelter organization. Builder Captains rally the support of their sub-contractors and trade partners, suppliers and manufacturers to bring in-kind donations of labor and materials to complete the project, thus minimizing the costs for the shelter organization. All the savings provided by the Builder Captain and its team allows the shelter organization to redirect those funds into services their homeless clients desperately need.

HomeAid actively raises funds to bridge the budget gap between what the Builder Captains can provide and the funds the shelter needs for the project. HomeAid also provides all levels of project management including budgeting, land planning, project design, and acquiring permits. We ensure funding is not a barrier to the completion of a project so Builder Captains and Trade Partners can focus on what they do best; the building!

HomeAid prides itself in working with builders that can take on projects of all sizes and significantly save shelter organizations scarce funds. Serving as a Builder Captain may be one of the most satisfying construction projects you, your partners and staff will work on. After you’ve completed one project, you may decide to volunteer for another.

HomeAid recognizes the work of each Builder Captain and its trade partners through press releases, a special luncheon, on our website, in our monthly Building Hope eNewsletter, advertising placed in local community newspapers, and inclusion in the Builders’ Circle of Excellence.

“Projects like this allow everyone in the community to see a new face of the building industry.”
