Atlanta’s Brock Built Homes joined HomeAid Atlanta and Making A Way Housing Inc. Thursday to cut the ribbon on the renovation of an eight-unit apartment building that adds 16 new beds for homeless Atlanta residents.

As the HomeAid Atlanta builder captain on the project, Brock Built also painted the exterior, installed new doors and windows, and added interior finishes including low-maintenance laminate flooring; updated kitchen appliances, plumbing and light fixtures; and a new roof and HVAC system.

“When HomeAid brought the project to us, we decided to get involved with Making A Way Housing because we saw the impact it is having on people’s lives and the surrounding community,” said Brock Built president Steve Brock in a press release. “We felt it was a worthwhile project we could contribute our time and resources to and create a higher standard of living for those in need.”

Making A Way Housing provides emergency, transitional, and permanent housing and case management services to single adults facing complex challenges associated with chronic homelessness, substance abuse, mental illness, and HIV and AIDS.

Over the last 17 years, HomeAid Atlanta, the designated charity of the Greater Atlanta HBA, has completed over 100 housing, remodel and Care Day projects that serve victims of domestic violence, teen mothers and veterans.
