“As home builders, it should come as no surprise that we believe everyone deserves a safe, stable and dignified place to call home,” said Brad Schoenberg, president of Taylor Morrison’s Phoenix Division and the newly elected board president of HomeAid Phoenix. “HomeAid Phoenix is a more direct opportunity for our industry to come together to help provide housing and improve the lives of those in our community experiencing homelessness.”
An estimated 7,400 people experience homelessness on any given night across the Valley, according to the Department of Housing and Urban Development. In late 2019, HomeAid America - a national nonprofit that provides housing opportunities and related resources for Americans experiencing homelessness - launched a Phoenix chapter in partnership with some of the region’s leading home builders.
Working with some of the Valley's most impactful nonpfrofit organizations, HomeAid Phoenix is working to become an integral part of the community's fight to end homelessness. In communities across the country, HomeAid has built more than 550 housing and shelter projects valued at more than $230 million, of which nearly 50 percent was donated in-kind by the building industry.
