CARE Ownership focuses on a part of inner-city blight that is not addressed by any other organization - properties owned by absentee landlords that have been abandoned, have become drug havens, or have been totally neglected.
Blighted and abandoned properties contribute to the negative cycle of neighborhood decline and hopelessness for low-income, disadvantaged populations.
CARE Ownership’s mission is to break this cycle by transforming inner-city neighborhoods while giving families of low income an economic opportunity to thrive not just survive!
CARE Ownership fights economic segregation and supports wealth building of residents in low-income communities. Mentoring individuals in the skills of real estate management leads to their ownership of renovated, income-producing residences in transformed neighborhoods.
It takes a determined individual to trust enough to step beyond the stereotypes, learned behaviors and ingrained assumptions that block the path to safe housing and secure employment. CARE Ownership provides the tools and the opportunity!
Together we can help stop the cycle of neighborhood decay and gentrification that leaves low-income families uprooted or at the mercy of slum landlords!
CARE Ownership is a comprehensive alternative!
