HomeAid Atlanta is proud to announce our partnership with Harcrest Homes to build a new six-unit apartment building for Rainbow Village, a long-term transformational housing community for homeless families in north metro Atlanta. Each apartment within Rainbow Village is complete with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and a living area, and this apartment will be the Village’s third building, which will add approximately 36 beds for families in need.
The building is expected to commence in October as part of Phase II of Rainbow Village’s “Building Strong Communities…One Family at a Time,” three-phase campaign. After completion, the campus will consist of a 30-family Village, including a administrative offices, a family service center and a community center.
Rainbow Village CEO, Rev. Nancy Yancey says, “Rainbow Village is thrilled to be partnering with HomeAid and Harcrest Homes on this project. I can’t think of a better way to utilize shared resources and community effort in a meaningful way that will be helpful to generations of homeless families with children in the years to come.”
This project couldn’t be completed without the hard work of Mike Smith of Harcrest Homes, who has generously donated his time to lead the construction effort. Harcrest Homes has been a long-time member of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association (HBA), and an advocate for philanthropic efforts.
“HomeAid Atlanta is honored to partner with Rainbow Village. Rainbow Village is an exemplary transitional housing organization, led by an extraordinarily committed leader, Rev. Nancy Yancey. As the housing industry continues to improve, we believe its members are ready to resume volunteer and material donation efforts, as Harcrest Homes has charitably shown. What better way for the housing industry to give back to the community than through building homes for those who need time to rebuild their lives?” said Jean Hilyard, Executive Director for HomeAid Atlanta.
We are truly excited to assist Rainbow Village in their outstanding effort to assist families in need.
