HomeAid Receives Support From Milgard on 5 Homeless Housing Projects
Product Donations Reduce Construction Costs for Nonprofits Across the Country
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., June 8, 2018 (Newswire.com) - HomeAid America, a nonprofit organization that builds housing for organizations helping the homeless, is proud to announce the completion of five homeless housing developments that received generous support from Milgard Windows & Doors through a national partnership established in 2016.
HomeAid identifies charities serving homeless populations that are in need of additional or upgraded housing facilities and recruits builders, their trade partners and suppliers to take on these projects, completing them at a deep discount through the in-kind donation of their time and materials.
Milgard provided an in-kind donation of low maintenance, durable and energy-efficient vinyl windows, backed with a Full Lifetime Warranty. This significantly reduced construction costs for five HomeAid projects that added 135 beds for women, children, families, veterans and trafficked youth experiencing homelessness in Portland, Sacramento, Boulder, Orange County and the Bay Area of California.
“We strive to see our communities thrive and appreciate the opportunity to give back in our local neighborhoods,” said Jeremiah Noneman, Marketing Director at Milgard Windows & Doors. “Milgard is pleased to support HomeAid in their effort to alleviate homelessness that affects more than 3.5 million Americans per year.”
Milgard’s donation of 229 windows and patio doors allowed HomeAid to reinvest their capital into life-changing programs such as education, job-skills training and financial counseling to help residents move from homelessness to self-sufficiency.
“We thank Milgard for their major contribution to these worthwhile projects across the country,” said Peter Simons, CEO of HomeAid America. “Having their high-quality windows and patio doors in these homes will assure cost savings for the service providers that they can use for programs to help those in need get back on their feet.”
