BuildAid is a partnership between HomeAid Houston, a 501 c 3 charity of the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA), and the Association's builder members that was created to assist homeowners impacted by the historic flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey in August 2017.
Over 100,000 homes in the Houston area were impacted and an estimated 85% of families and individuals did not have flood insurance.
What BuildAid Does
The goal is to get these families back into their homes as quickly as possible. Once a family or individual is pre-qualified, BuildAid taps into the strength and experience of the GHBA to get builders on site to begin construction management. Remodeling and restoration of the home is expedited and designed to be cost -efficient.
About HomeAid Houston
HomeAid Houston identifies long term, stable homeless care providers who need additional capacity and pairs them with GHBA builders, vendors and suppliers who donate their time, materials and labor to help build transitional homeless shelters. HomeAid is currently celebrating its 15 year anniversary and the completion of 50 projects. After the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, HomeAid answered the question that many were asking, "What needs to happen next?"and BuildAid was launched.
