This week Westwood Insurance agency proudly announces renewed commitment to HomeAid the fight to end homelessness Westwood began working with HomeAid in 2019 and will once again join HomeAid’s efforts as a silver-level sponsor.
HomeAid is a nationally recognized non-profit that helps people who are experiencing or at risk for homelessness. It provides support through education, community engagement, construction, and other forms of assistance. HomeAid uses the power of collaboration with local and national builders, trades, suppliers, and community partners to maximize resources and expertise for non‐profit service providers to create safe and dignified housing and programmatic facilities for those without a home. Over 520,000 people are now able to access housing and other resources through its efforts.
President of Westwood Alan Umaly, who also sits on HomeAid’s Board of Directors, has spoken about the importance of HomeAid’s cause and how it connects with Westwood’s own mission. “As an insurance agency dedicated to helping people protect what matters most, we know how important a home is.”
Umaly’s enthusiasm filters across the company. Apart from the corporate $25,000 contribution, employees have made individual donations to supply personal hygiene kits and household supplies. Every bit of assistance is appreciated in 2022 as the pandemic, and its aftermath, have made homelessness more common. Umaly as reflected “We’re proud and honored to support HomeAid and make a difference in the lives of so many.”
Westwood’s donation and commitment to HomeAid provide tangible resources that allow the non-profit to provide housing, life-changing programs, and the physical and emotional support needed to help people get back on their feet. “I could not be more grateful for the support and leadership from Westwood Insurance Agency in HomeAid’s mission,” HomeAid CEO Scott Larson. “It is only through the engagement and collaboration from our partners that we can achieve HomeAid’s vision of building a future without homelessness.”
