individual donors

The generosity of our individual donors makes our work in the community possible. By investing in our work, your support helps us provide quality, safe homes that our low-income neighbors can afford and new homeowners can access. It helps those who are out of work to secure a job and create a financial plan to build wealth. Because of you, at-risk teenagers have the support they need to succeed in school and work with professionals in their chosen career field.  Your contribution helps build social capital in the community – people are connected to each other and the information they need to act on behalf of a healthy, desirable neighborhood.
