As we always look toward the future, Believers United for Progress has begun planning the Housing and Development program. The goal is to provide affordable housing for lower income families and provide the local community a chance to be involved in the development process. We plan to purchase abandoned or foreclosed properties from the City of Durham and from Housing and Urban Development below market value. Utilizing our partnerships and locals in the community, we will teach trade skills through the rehabilitation of the properties and then sell them to lower income families. Housing recipients would be selected through public service organizations and an ‘Adopt a Family’ participant would be considered as long as they meet the agencies requirements.
