Founded in 2004, HomeAid Southern Nevada’s mission is building new lives for Southern Nevada’s homeless through housing and community outreach.

The HomeAid Southern Nevada chapter is sponsored by the Southern Nevada Home Builders Association.

Since opening its doors, more than 150,000 square feet in the Las Vegas Valley have been renovated, and more than 3,000 homeless children and adults have been served through the great work of countless builders, trades, sponsors and volunteers involved with HomeAid Southern Nevada.
