Blackpledge First Home Project
Blackpledge first home project is a program created because understand in order to build wealth homeownership is a key ingredient. Today with so many programs offering a path to homeownership. We wanted to know why more black families are not homeowners? What we realize is that you can’t just take a group of people after Decades of racism with systems put in place for oppression is one of the reasons
why the numbers are so low. Our community has to be nurtured and thought about things like finance and credit. Doing this program families will learn skills like budgeting and money management with priority spending. The lack of those skills is the reason why the black dollar only stays in our community for six hours. Our goal is to put One thousand families in homes over the next ten years.
All new members are subject to a 90-day probationary period before the use of any service. This protects both our members and the company. A $100 registration fee plus the first month is needed to start this new membership plan.
