OHD Atlanta Teamed Up With Local Organizations For A Worthy Cause

Overhead Door Company of Atlanta is forever committed to improving the community that surrounds them.

That’s why when we were approached by HomeAid America with the opportunity to help with improvements for Haven ATL we jumped at the chance.

For three days we participated in the HomeAid Care Day event to provide renovations to Haven ATL, an organization dedicated to serving women who have fallen victim to commercial sexual exploitation.

During this time we partnered with BrightView landscaping to make major landscaping improvements on the property. For the construction related improvements, we partnered with Juneau Construction Company, BrightView, BMC Lumber and others to complete needed renovations. After all of the improvements were completed, we provided a savings of about $20,000 for Haven ATL!

Here are some kind words we received from Homeaid Atlanta:

“Dear Overhead Door Company Volunteer,

On behalf of HomeAid Atlanta, Haven ATL and the women they serve, we send heartfelt thanks to Overhead Door Company and its staff for all the hard work of your team during the HomeAid Care Day on June 10, 2017. 

Your efforts made great improvements at the Haven ATL drop-in center!  Your team built walls, stained a large fence, installed siding, painted, cleaned, re-installed an exterior door, and more!  As soon as the drop-in center opens its doors, thanks to you, the women will have comfortable surroundings where the will attend counseling and other life-skills classes as they heal from the difficulties they have faced.   

As always, Overhead Door Company of Atlanta was so professional and hard-working, and we really enjoyed working with your team.  OHD has a fantastic group of hardworking individuals, and HomeAid is honored to have had your assistance for this worthwhile project.

Companies like yours make it possible for HomeAid to accomplish its mission of building new lives for Atlanta’s homeless families and individuals through housing and community outreach.  With the growing need for housing and supportive services, the work of HomeAid Atlanta remains a critical endeavor.  It can be a very tough world for people who have nowhere to go, but your support helps make a difference.  We look forward to working with you again next year!”
