DollarDays and HomeAid America today announced a national partnership that will help grow HomeAid’s community outreach program to serve more people facing homelessness. As part of the partnership, DollarDays will develop a dedicated online wholesale marketplace where HomeAid chapters across the country can purchase a variety of high-value products to support their outreach campaigns.
HomeAid America is the leading national nonprofit provider of housing for today’s homeless. The organization builds and renovates multiunit homes for America’s temporarily homeless while they rebuild their lives. In addition, HomeAid identifies charities working to end homelessness and collaborates with the building industry to provide extra or upgraded facilities in which to house people.
“HomeAid’s community outreach helps to offset everyday living expenses by providing basic necessities such as clothing and hygiene items to those in need,” said Peter Simons, CEO of HomeAid America. “Since 2014, HomeAid has distributed nearly 10 million essential items to families in need, including diapers and wipes, backpacks, clothing, housewares, and school supplies. DollarDays’ partnership will allow us to better support individuals and families who need help to regain self-sufficiency and get back on their feet.”
“Much of the homeless population HomeAid is working with are families and children,” said Shelly Chaney, Vice President and General Manager for DollarDays. “At DollarDays, our products and services tightly align with organizations that service youth. We welcome the opportunity to partner with HomeAid and extend the good that its chapters do every day.”
HomeAid, founded in Southern California in 1989, is a nonprofit provider of housing and resources for the homeless that operates through a network of 18 chapters nationwide. HomeAid has completed over 550 housing projects with a value of more than $230 million, of which nearly 50 percent was donated by the building industry. HomeAid has added over 10,000 beds that have housed over 325,000 previously homeless individuals. For more information visit www.homeaid.org.
