HomeAid America Receives Mohawk Industries Grant
Newport Beach, Calif. (April 4, 2017)–HomeAid America, a nonprofit that provides housing to organizations helping the homeless throughout the country, is proud to announce that it has been selected to receive a $50,000 donation from Mohawk Industries, the world’s largest flooring manufacturer.

HomeAid America was awarded a grant to oversee its programs, which: 1) build housing and other facilities for homelessness service providers and 2) undertake community outreach activities to provide facility renovation or operational assistance for the programs of these service providers.

Mohawk is represented on the HomeAid America Board of Directors by Karen Mendelsohn, senior vice president of marketing.

“HomeAid is a strong steward and partner in lifting up those in our nation who are in the greatest need of help,” said Mendelsohn. “HomeAid’s values are consistent with Mohawk’s. We both look for better ways of delivering results, and we are both dedicated to driving positive change.”

HomeAid shelter projects are built for charities helping the homeless in its 17 communities. Over 3.5 million people experience homelessness in the U.S. each year, including young families without a financial safety net, victims of domestic violence, youth aging out of the foster system and veterans coming home from war. The charities HomeAid builds for provide support services—such as education and job-skills training, financial counseling and both physical and emotional support—that help residents move toward self-sufficiency.

“For generations, Mohawk’s products have been synonymous with creating stylish, comfortable homes, so promoting universal access to sustainable housing is a natural area of focus for us,” said Mendelsohn. “Our support for HomeAid is consistent with existing national partnerships with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and Building for America’s Bravest that support stable housing as well as with local nonprofit groups with similar goals that do important work within their communities.”

HomeAid America CEO Peter Simons said, “Mohawk has shown amazing generosity for our cause through this grant. We are honored for the faith they have shown in us to help the homeless around the country, and we are proud of our 28-year history of doing just that.

Mendelsohn said, “The benefits that HomeAid is providing for homeless individuals and families is fantastic, and it’s a privilege for me to give back to those in need as well as use my industry experience and relationships to advance HomeAid’s cause nationally.”
