In order to bridge the wealth gap on America, it is imperative that the barriers to home ownership be broken down for black home owners. This fund will 100% be offered directly to the chosen participants that are in need of homes and can afford their mortgage payments, therefore building equity. We recognize the need to serve the homeless and the interconnection of numerous other issues, yet the focus here is to use excess wealth and redistribute it to those who have been challenged to collect down payments for a home.

Buying the Block

The real estate will be purchased directly by buyers. The real estate team will assist the buyers throughout the process. Credit repair, first time home buyer classes and community building gatherings will be organized. If the buyer does not yet have the credit needed, the nonprofit will hold the home, until the credit of the buyers is ready to buy the property, at which time it will be offered at the purchasing cost.

Wealth Building

The goal is not only to build financial wealth, but to build a zone of black liberation. A space that will offer green space, healing space, community education and community policing. This will be a close community coming together for the purpose of building multigenerational, multi dimensional WEALTH.
