HOMEAID LAUNCHES HOMEAID WORKS PROGRAM
HomeAid WORKS, HomeAid Houstonʼs newest initiative, is a workforce development program that provides job opportunities to clients who are working with HomeAid’s agency partners. The program offers vetted individuals wanting to enter the homebuilding industry, the tools and training to learn the trade. HomeAid WORKS not only matches these individuals to jobs with the Greater Houston Builders Association member companies, it provides additional resources such as appropriate training, both instructional and on-the-job, transportation assistance, proper attire and gear, one-on-one mentorship and more, to ensure job success and future advancement. These individuals want to learn, want to work, want to enter the homebuilding industry, and want to build a better future for themselves and their families.
HomeAid WORKS job categories include cabinetry, CDL licensed driver, drywall, foundation, framing, HVAC apprenticeship, insulation, irrigation, junior electrician, landscaping, lumber puller, plumbing apprenticeship, supply trade, trim work and more.
HomeAid is working directly with three of their agency partners, Angel Reach, Boys and Girls Country and Family Promise of Lake Houston to offer this opportunity to clients who have met the qualifications to enter the program.
“HomeAid WORKS is designed to offer life-changing opportunities to those HomeAid serves,” said James Miller, president of HomeAid Houston. “This program will also help expand and strengthen the home building industry by filling job openings. Everyone wins with HomeAid WORKS.”
