Celebrating its milestone 20th anniversary, HomeAid Atlanta partners with providers who help those on the brink of or experiencing homelessness in the metro area through education, construction and community engagement. The nonprofit organization is incredibly thankful for the in-kind and financial impacts courtesy of Century Communities.
A top 10 national home builder, Century Communities, Inc. constructs new homes under its brands Century Communities and Century Complete. The company attracts a wide range of homeowners and serves over 40 markets in 17 states, including the metro Atlanta area.

During April and May, the builder’s employees raised nearly $7,000 in support of HomeAid Atlanta’s annual drive through an office-wide campaign. The funds purchased baby wipes and diapers to support 23 local metro Atlanta organizations serving families in need. HomeAid Atlanta’s Essentials Drive has collected over 1.2 million baby items since 2001 and Century Communities employees participated in the nonprofit’s annual drive.
This past June, Century Communities donated appliances, furniture, cabinetry and more to assist the nonprofit’s renovation of Making A Way Housing. Valued at nearly $25,000, Century Communities made the impactful decision to donate the showroom’s furniture items to HomeAid Atlanta, benefiting families in need. Make A Way Housing is one of 10 projects currently underway in 2021 and through the donation of integral items, the organization and HomeAid Atlanta can reduce construction and furnishing costs.
On September 24, the team at Century Communities also participated in a Care Day at Forsyth County Family Haven, painting rooms and landscaping the 21-bed facility. Family Haven supports and offers sanctuary for families and individuals who are victims of domestic abuse. Care Days have been integral since 2008 in offering free repairs, facility maintenance and upgrades for organizations across the metro area. To date, Care Days have provided over $845,000 in free services.
Century Communities participated as a foursome and sponsor at HomeAid’s 19th Annual Hope & Homes Golf Tournament, in early October. The company has also committed to supporting the Thanks for Giving Drive, an outreach initiative raising funds for Thanksgiving food baskets for working homeless families in Atlanta. The event is led by HomeAid Atlanta and the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association’s Young Professionals Group.
“We are so grateful to have the Century Communities team as a part of our HomeAid Atlanta family! They have provided generous support for nearly all of our programs and projects this year ensuring that we can continue to pursue our mission to build a future without homelessness,” said Mandy Crater, HomeAid Atlanta executive director.
With partnerships as essential as the one with Century Communities, HomeAid Atlanta can help to provide safe and dignified housing for the homeless population in metro Atlanta, an estimated 5,500 individuals. Century Communities’ commitment to volunteering, offering industry expertise and donations adds incredible value to the communities it serves.
Century Communities bolstered the renovation of North Georgia Angel House’s Lotus House during the summer by providing materials for the project and leading the renovation, project management and design. Spanning 60 days, 10 Century Community team members and around 30 to 40 tradesmen built a refuge to house up to six young women in need of housing.
