Working to realize full participation in the American dream for African Americans and communities of color


Increasing homeownership and generational wealth.

Home ownership is essential for housing stability and generational wealth accumulation, but today, far too many people are unable to access the American dream of homeownership. The HomeServices Foundation for Housing Equity is committed to increasing homeownership and generational wealth for communities of color through education, investment in individuals, financial assistance and community reinvestment.

Historical Impediments to Minority Homeownership

Today’s housing disparities did not happen overnight. Systemic barriers in the housing industry have served to limit housing opportunities and deny people of color opportunities to obtain generational wealth. By understanding and addressing housing disparities, we can help create meaningful change for many of our communities of color in the United States.
