The ownership of land, home and real property is the foundation of economic self reliance and prosperity.
Opportunities to build wealth through property have been denied to marginalized groups. Some government institutions, banking institutions and real estate institutions have manipulated systems in order to bar access from property ownership. This manipulation comes in the forms of unfair appraisals, unethical mortgage lending processes, deed theft, and more.
These illegal practices create economic disparities that Devotion’s Home Owner’s Coalition works to address.
