Creating economic stability through land ownership, professional development, and racial healing.
Acres4Change (A4C) supports economic stability among disenfranchised individuals and communities. Through A4C’s flagship program, qualifying individuals are provided access and ownership to land at a heavily subsidized cost. A4C partners with various social service agencies and higher education institutions to provide the professional mentoring and training needed for these individuals to develop that land, return it to productive economic and social use, and combat community deterioration. We aim to build futures and create economic stability through the provision of land access and ownership, professional development and/or skills acquisition towards sustainable livelihoods.
