Mission: To provide dignified housing for the homeless.
About: Homelessness in America is on the rise. The down and out bowery images from the 30s and 40s is only a stereotype greatly and inaccurately painting the picture of todays homeless. Today the homeless are single women with children. Entire families displaced because of unemployment, natural disasters and the failures of a society that supposedly protects. Demographically it goes across the board: the elderly, the middle aged and the young. And a new class of homeless are on the rise: veterans of Iran and the Afghanistan war fronts. Those who risked their lives protecting our freedoms are now returning home to no home.
HomeAid NWA is a 501 (C) Non Profit Corporation Chartered by HomeAid America (homeaid.org). We are one of 28 nationwide chapters devoted to issues of the homeless. Our first project was the construction of a 1,300 sq. ft. building for the Childrens Advocacy Center in Little Flock, AR. We measure our success by the number of beds we can provide for the homeless in a dignified, homestyle setting. Gone are the days of cots in cold basements. HomeAid works to restore a persons and familys life productively and with pride.
