The power of home
Power of Home Programs
Circle of Life Power of Home Programs strengthen and support thriving communities through the power of home ownership so families can reach overall financial well-being through homeownership while working to revitalize and rehab distressed properties and making that refurbished inventory available to families in need. Communities can Rent, Repair or Own their home.
We partner to originate mortgage loans, help families enhance their credit scores, their standards of living, while contributing to improved economic conditions throughout the communities we serve.
We work to strengthen and sustain vibrant communities by empowering individuals
and families to build wealth through education and homeownership with a primary
focus on serving low- to moderate-income clients.
At COLDF, we believe that a home is more than a place to live. It is the Power of any individual and family’s economic, environmental and social wellbeing.
Power Shared Housing Program
Circle of Life Power Shared Support Housing is a “sweat equity” program that gives income qualified family the means to construct their own home. Families who participate perform approximately 65% of the construction labor, under qualified supervision of The Frink Firm, on their home. The labor that families contribute substantially reduce the cost of their home while also building equity. Participants in the program must be willing to contribute a minimum of 30 hours per week for approximately 6 to 12 months. Family and friends can contribute up to 15 hours per week which counts toward the 30 hours needed. The Power Shared Support Housing Program is designed to assist families who are unable to buy clean, safe housing through conventional methods.
