Clarkston, GA — Area home builders on June 18 participated in HomeAid Care Day in Clarkston.

“Nearly 30 volunteers from Brightwater Homes and members of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association Young Professionals Group joined building industry nonprofit HomeAid Atlanta at Positive Growth, Inc. in Clarkston,” a press release says. “HomeAid Care Days provide maintenance, upgrades, and repairs for nonprofits that serve people experiencing homelessness.”

Volunteers worked to paint bedrooms and stain an outdoor deck that serves as a gathering spot for the boys who live there.

“Positive Growth Inc. has a mission to provide a structured, home-like environment for troubled and/or homeless adolescent males ages six to 21 through spiritual, physical, intellectual and emotional guidance,” the press release says. “The work done by HomeAid volunteers helped to brighten up the atmosphere and provide a refresh for boys who are overcoming many challenges in their young lives.”

According to the press release, HomeAid Atlanta serves as a “bridge,” connecting builders, trades, and suppliers with community organizations serving families and individuals experiencing homelessness. Because of generous donations of labor and materials, HomeAid projects provide significant construction savings for these organizations. The June 18 Care Day saved $5,000 in building maintenance costs for Positive Growth, Inc., the press release says.

“Since 2008, HomeAid has held nearly 100 Care Days at locations serving victims of domestic violence, teen mothers, veterans and others,” the press release says. “This was HomeAid’s second Care Day at Positive Growth, Inc.”
