NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Feb. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- HomeAid America, a building industry charity and one of the nation's largest builders of housing for the homeless, has announced that TRI Pointe Group will continue in the non-profit's Corporate Partnership program as a leading national sponsor in 2017. TRI Pointe Group is a family of six premium regional homebuilders and one of the top 10 largest public homebuilders in the United States, based on equity market capitalization.
HomeAid America CEO Peter Simons said, "TRI Pointe and its family of homebuilders have been supporters of HomeAid across the country for several years, building projects for the homeless, volunteering in community outreach activities, and providing needed funding locally. Their support for HomeAid America as Corporate Partners is critical to help us support our chapters and create new ones to continue our ongoing effort on behalf of the building industry to help end homelessness in this country."
TRI Pointe will continue to be represented on the HomeAid America Board by John Monacci, Executive Vice President of Winchester Homes, a member of TRI Pointe Group in the Washington DC Area and who also sits on HomeAid Northern Virginia's chapter Board. TRI Pointe Group's other homebuilding companies are active with HomeAid in its markets in Arizona as Maracay Homes, in California and Las Vegas as Pardee Homes, in Seattle as Quadrant Homes, in California and Colorado as TRI Pointe Homes, and in Houston as Trendmaker Homes.
"We're honored to continue our involvement with HomeAid to lend a hand and give back to our communities in a meaningful way," said Linda Mamet, Vice President of Corporate Marketing at TRI Pointe Group. "Moving into 2017, we'll continue to look for opportunities to get all our team members involved with HomeAid at both the national and local chapter levels."
The team members from TRI Pointe Group's family of builders have helped numerous HomeAid chapters across the country over the past year. Working with HomeAid Northern Virginia (HANV) and Final Salute, Winchester Homes is serving as the builder captain to renovate a home that provides housing for female veterans and their minor children who are struggling with homelessness or military transition.
Trendmaker Homes recently helped with the construction of the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA) Benefit Home.

Working with HomeAid Southern Nevada, Pardee Homes Las Vegas served as builder captain for an extensive three-week renovation of Catholic Charities Men's Night Shelter, which houses an average of 500 men each night, 365 days a year. Pardee Homes also served as builder captain for a remodel of Family to Family Connection's two suites inside Cambridge Community Center in Las Vegas.
Quadrant Homes along with other sales and marketing leaders from across TRI Pointe Group participated in a community outreach Care Kit Day to assemble and donate more than 600 CareKits for Teen Feed, a local homeless youth service provider in Seattle's University District.
