Twindle Foundation Helping Minorities Change Their Future Through Homeownership
The Twindle Foundation is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to changing the wealth gap of African Americans and minorities by increasing homeownership. Although we've been told that we were all created equal that has never been the case. Opportunities aren't the same for minorities vs. their white counterpart, especially through homeownership.
Homeownership rates for African American families is near historic lows. In the first quarter of 2020:
- · 44% of Black families owned their home compared to 73.7% of white families, according to Census Bureau data.
- The homeownership gap between Black and white Americans has widened since the Great Recession.
