"HomeAid has been a true collaborator with Masco in its efforts to provide safe housing for individuals and families experiencing poverty and domestic violence," stated Keith Allman, Masco's President and Chief Executive Officer. "HomeAid is a strong steward and partner in helping to eradicate homelessness across our nation." HomeAid shelter projects are built for charities helping the homeless in its 17 chapters' communities. These charities provide support services that help residents move toward self-sufficiency, such as education and job-skills training, financial counseling, and both physical and emotional support. HomeAid also continues to receive free or deeply discounted product for its building projects from several of Masco's brands including Delta Faucets, Behr Paints, and Milgard Windows and Doors. These product donations from Masco and other building industry partners allow HomeAid to build housing for the homeless at a fraction of the normal cost, on average for 50 cents on the dollar.
