Project Playhouse

Project Playouse® is a well-known fundraising event that raised millions of dollars for HomeAid Orange County for 20 years.

Funding helped support the development of much-needed housing for homeless individuals and families throughout Orange County. Home Builders showed their support for HomeAid's mission by building beautiful and whimsical playhouses that were then displayed at the Project Playhouse® Village. Project Playhouse, a beloved Orange County event that delighted millions of guests and raised a total of $6.3 million to support HomeAid OC, was placed on hiatus after its 2012 event.

HomeAid OC is eternally grateful to all those who supported the event and HomeAid's mission through the event over the years and wishes to encourage learning how the building industry has continued to show its support by channeling its efforts into HomeAid Essentials: "Builders for Babies - Project Diaper House".
