Volunteers from Heatherland Homes were happy to join HomeAid Atlanta on September 10 for its 10th Care Day this year.On HomeAid Atlanta Care Days, HomeAid provides free of-charge maintenance and repairs for nonprofit facilities that serve Atlanta’s homeless population.
During the September Care Day, we joined more than 50 other HomeAid Atlanta volunteers at Jerusalem House to repair a brick retaining wall, paint exterior furniture, plant flowers, add mulch, spread pine straw, place rubber in playground area and clean up debris found on the property. With all the time and materials donated by Care Day volunteers, the Jerusalem House was able to save over $12,000, not to mention the hours and hours of labor contributed!
Jerusalem House is an Atlanta nonprofit that provides permanent supportive housing for low-income and homeless individuals and families affected by HIV/AIDS. Jerusalem House provides over 70% of the permanent supportive housing for Atlanta’s population with HIV/AIDS.
Now with maintenance and repairs fixed thanks to the helping hands of HomeAid and its volunteers, the Jerusalem House can use their savings to continue helping others. This nonprofit has helped save many lives over the years by giving access to housing, medication and support to people living with HIV/AIDS.
At Heatherland Homes, we were honored and humbled to offer our help and support to Jerusalem House during this Care Day. To learn more about Heatherland Homes, visit www.HeatherlandHomes.com.
