Idea: I want to do something concrete to support lower-income Columbus homeowners, particularly seniors, in keeping their homes and building generational wealth. I would do this in two ways, first by partnering with a nonprofit organization to recruit volunteers to invest “sweat equity” and help renovate the homes of lower-income residents. Another step would be developing a canvassing campaign to share information to help homeowners understand their options when facing financial challenges that could result in the loss of their home.
