Help Families Reclaim Vacant, Vandalized Central-City Homes

ACTS Housing's mission is to promote affordable homeownership that fosters a low-income family's ability to be self-empowered, thereby reducing community blight, neighborhood deterioration, and poverty. We need your Help!

ACTS primary services are:

  • Homebuyer Counseling- One-on-one, HUD approved homebuyer counseling for individuals interested in purchasing a home for owner-occupancy.
  • Neighborhood Housing Sales: As licensed Realtors, ACTS represents families in the purchase of homes for owner occupancy, primarily central city neighborhoods.
  • Rehab Management: ACTS promotes vacant properties for owner-occupancy and represents families during coordination of rehab plans, with a focus on reclaiming vandalized foreclosures.

ACTS Housing’s vision is that each block inside the church neighborhoods we serve is made up of at least 60% homeowners who are self-empowered. Self-empowered families have access to low-cost money, are entrepreneurial, build wealth through ownership, and live in save, sanitary, and affordable housing.

The low housing cost that results from the purchase of vacant, vandalized foreclosures, especially City of Milwaukee tax foreclosures, saves entrepreneurial families hundreds of dollars a month as compared to renting. This is especially true because most of our families roll up their sleeves and pour sweat equity into their new home.

We witness parents using this hard-earned home equity to pay for needed medical care, send their kids to college, or fund small business ventures. Your donation will empower! Please give what you are able.
