Support from Meyers Research continues at a pivotal time as HomeAid celebrates its 30th anniversary and the success of completing over 550 projects that have housed 330,000 people who would have otherwise been homeless.
It is hard to believe that Meyers Research has now done 14 of these events to benefit HomeAid over the years, always providing the attendees valuable and engaging information on the latest issues in the industry. I have to say that this one may have been the best! We give our undying gratitude to Jeff Meyers and his team, who have been incredibly reliable and compassionate partners of HomeAid.

HomeAid’s program identifies charities working to help the homeless that are in need of additional facilities in which to house people. HomeAid’s builder captains and their partners and suppliers take on these projects, completing them at a deep discount through the in-kind donation of their time and materials. Through the HomeAid model, more than $245 million of housing has been developed with a cost savings of over $120 million. These cost-savings are reinvesting into life-changing programs such as job and life skills training, financial counseling, and physical and emotional support needed to get back on their feet.
