Mission Statement

Founded in 1997, the Home Builders Foundation directs the philanthropic activities of the home building community by providing shelter for area residents in need and supporting the future of our industry by offering mentorship and educational opportunities for tomorrow's workforce.

Description

Shelter Development-The Foundation facilitates the building (new construction) or renovation of dignified housing for the temporarily homeless. Through its shelter building arm, HomeAid Portland, builders are partnered with local non-profit care providers seeking to expand facilities designed to house individuals and families in need of temporary shelter.

The Foundation also administers volunteer programs to improve the livability and function of local care providers' existing facilities. Its annual volunteer and shelter care event, Painting a Better Tomorrow, allows HBA members and other industry leaders to directly contribute to the maintenance of local homeless shelters, most of whom operate on a shoestring budget and have few available funds for maintenance costs.

Workforce Development - The Foundation awards high school scholarships and mentored college scholarships. It also supports secondary education opportunities for at-risk youth with funding tied to housing and homebuilding.
