BLACK HOME OWNERSHIP MATTERS
REBUILDING GENERATIONAL WEALTH THROUGH HOME OWNERSHIP
Less than 23% of African American's- Historical Black people in Minnesota own a home which is a devastating reality that must change. Home ownership is the top wealth builder in the United States, it is critical for Historical Black people to own homes and property.
Our goal is to Strengthen Black home ownership through our Home Buyers Club. Our Club is held in a unique partnership with Washington County Community Development Agency, we offer HUD Home Stretch Education & Certification, insights on the history of Black Land ownership and alternative pathways to home ownership.
Classes are held over 6 weeks, 1 day per week for 2 hours. A HUD certified certificate is given once cohort members complete the Home Stretch sessions, one to one counseling and referrals to other services is also available.
Additional Club Education Offered
- Group Credit Challenge
- Purchasing Foreclosed and Rehabbed Properties
- Habitat for Humanity & Community Land-trust Homes
We work with a variety of agencies and stakeholders to provide a range of resources and support to our Club members. Check out our calendar for upcoming info sessions.
