CCB’s mission is to reduce the homeownership gap as a means of closing the racial wealth gap for minorities and millennials.
In addition to building wealth, homeownership correlates with increased political and community participation, higher life satisfaction, and allows families to invest in their children’s education. So, when people of color are denied access to homeownership, they are denied access to a powerful tool towards a high quality of life.
San Joaquin Villas
The San Joaquin Villas, a housing development project in Firebaugh, California was developed by California Community Builders…
In 2011 CCB’s founders convened a meeting with the Federal Reserve Bank to discuss impediments to homeownership. Grassroots educational conferences throughout California has increased our community coalition to 1,000 members. We have expanded our work to include millennials, generation z and students, a trio we refer to as the M&MZ (Minorities Millennials & Generation Z).
“Redlined, A Legacy of Housing Discrimination”, highlights the issues present today as a result of historic redlining policies and practices, the health implications of being systemically denied housing, and the social and economic impact of these policies on communities of color.
