Building the Foundation
for Stronger Communities
The Taylor Morrison Foundation is dedicated to fighting homelessness in America. As builders, we are uniquely positioned to contribute to the cause by using our industry-honed skills and resources to build and remodel multi-unit shelters. We are proud to partner with HomeAid’s local chapters on building and renovation projects that enable shelter providers to serve more people in need of temporary or transitional housing.
Taylor Morrison team members and the Taylor Morrison Foundation contribute volunteer forces, project leadership, grants and in-kind donations to support HomeAid’s core mission to build new lives for America’s homeless.
Since 1989, HomeAid America has provided critical housing solutions for more than 300,000 individuals and families facing homelessness due to circumstances beyond their control. HomeAid focuses on serving the women, children and families who make up about 80 percent of the total homeless population due to unforeseen events such as job loss, natural disaster, domestic abuse or a medical condition.
Taylor Morrison’s Denver division joined forces with other local builders and trades to support the annual Builders for Babies supply drive. Taylor Morrison contributed more than 55,000 diapers to benefit local low-income families as part of the HomeAid Essentials effort.
In spring 2018, more than 20 Taylor Morrison team members volunteered for a renovation project benefitting Sacramento’s military veterans, in partnership with HomeAid Sacramento and Volunteers of America. A 12-unit apartment building received much-needed remodeling along with new furnishings to create beautiful move-in ready homes for veterans and their families.
Taylor Morrison, friends of HomeAid Atlanta and members of the Greater Atlanta Homebuilders Association partnered for a HomeAid Care Day at Covenant House Georgia, a shelter for homeless and trafficked youth. Spearheaded by Brandon Richardson of Taylor Morrison, the work and in-kind material donations provided through this effort were valued at more than $27,000, funds that the service provider needed for the essential improvements.
The Taylor Morrison Foundation provided a grant of $6,000 to support the formation of a new HomeAid chapter in Austin. Taylor Morrison’s Austin division president, April Whitaker, helped spur the effort to bring a HomeAid chapter to the area and Taylor Morrison served as builder captain on the chapter’s first renovation project.

Taylor Morrison and other Houston builders teamed up to address the unique challenges facing homeowners impacted by Hurricane Harvey. BuildAid, a special effort on behalf of HomeAid, set out to repair storm
and flooding damage at little to no cost to homeowners in need. Fueled by a $5.5 million grant from the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, the joint effort pairs qualified homeowners with building partners like Taylor Morrison to help restore their homes.
