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 educational opportunities for tomorrow’s workforce.
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
The Foundation also administers volunteer programs to improve the
livability and function of local care providers’ existing facilities.
Its annual volunteer blitz 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. Click here to find out about our latest projects.
