“Meyers Research forecast events helping to support the end of homelessness a labor of love.”

HomeAid America is a major national building industry charity and one of the largest builders of housing for the homeless in the country. For the past three years, it has also been the beneficiary of the generosity of Meyers Research, a Kennedy Wilson Company, one of its top national partners.

Meyers Research has been holding housing forecast events to benefit HomeAid America for over three years. The recent event in Denver held on July 19th was the 10th such forecast event, and including an additional event held by its parent company Kennedy Wilson to launch HomeAid’s LA chapter, the company has now raised $500,000 through ticket sales and sponsorships for the homelessness charity. Jeff Meyers, President of Meyers Research and HomeAid America Board member said, “It’s important to our team to champion a cause greater than ourselves. Our partnership with HomeAid allows us to make a difference in the fight to combat homelessness. We are thrilled to reach the $500,000 mark.”

The Meyers Research forecast events started in Orange County CA in January 2014 as a way for the company to make an on-going contribution to HomeAid and also help the charity spread the word on its work throughout the industry. The events proved to be incredible successes, with subsequent events held in Las Vegas, Northern Virginia, Atlanta, and Denver. Orange County completed its 4th annual event this past March. In total, approximately 1,800 people have attended these events with the proceeds from the ticket sales as well as sponsorships all being donated to HomeAid.

HomeAid America CEO Peter Simons said, “What started as a singular effort to help support our cause of ending homelessness has turned into a real mission, and a labor of love on behalf of the entire Meyers and Kennedy Wilson organizations. Jeff Meyers’ personal service on our Board of Directors further enhances and deepens this bond. HomeAid and Meyers Research have been a great team and are making a difference together.”
