Strategic Vision and Priorities

In our 2022-2024 strategic vision and priorities we are refining and retooling our efforts to address among other issues, the expanding gap in racial inequalities and increasing construction and land costs. We have begun a scholarship fund with a goal of distributing awards to homeowners and their children beginning in 2024, and we are moving into more non-traditional models of homebuilding to combat factors that have caused our average house cost to hit a record high of $150,000 in 2021, as compared to $90,000 in 2019.

Our plan also includes committing to 300 housing solutions by 2024. We will continue to deliver financial literacy and home maintenance classes to our new homebuyers to prepare them for homeownership. Many have never lived in a home that was owned, so for some, their favorite class was breaking down how credit works and how to do basic repairs, while for others, it was the relationships they forged during the process of working alongside other new homeowners.

As we address the long-term health, generational wealth, and educational outcomes that begin with that first opportunity, we hope you’ll be a part of our expanded growth plans.
