Give to the Max Day 2018 is just around the corner on November 15. Last year we broke our individual fundraising record and, as a result, we were able to expand our outreach across communities of color in the Twin Cities, and build relationships with the Somali community. We were also able to hire a Somali speaking homeownership advisor. None of this would be possible without the generous support of individuals like you. This year we are confident we can make even more progress in our important work.
A donation to PRG can:
- Help renovate a vacant house into a beautiful home for families of color. In 2017 PRG sold 11 homes with all but one purchased by households of color with an average income of 65% AMI.
- Help our advisors hold 18 first-time homebuyer education workshops. Last year we provided pre-purchase education to 458 households and one-on-one advising to 305 households.
- Provide free, one-on-one, foreclosure prevention assistance to families. Of the foreclosure cases resolved in 2017, 83% avoided foreclosure.
In the coming weeks will be sharing homeowner stories and videos, and more details on Give to the Max Day 2018 on our website and social media.
