Summary

Parity innovatively heals neighborhoods experiencing hyper-vacancy by creating pathways for social collectives to purchase homes together block by block as a means of community and wealth-building.

Description

Parity’s innovative model works across to equitably restore Black neighborhoods experiencing hyper-vacancy and increase affordable homeownership by using a systems change approach to lifting systemic barriers that make acquisition and redevelopment of abandoned buildings cumbersome. Parity restores the social fabric of neighborhoods through Collective power building and trauma-informed healing and mitigates the loss of legacy residents through mutual aid. In addition, Parity reduces the Appraisal Gap through policy implementations.
