As a community partner and the largest donor on the project, Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation welcomes the community to the National Black Contractors Association’s (BCA) Community Open House for this newly remodeled veteran home. In 2017, Jacobs Center deeded the property to BCA for a symbolic $100. Over this past year, BCA has worked hard to remodel the entire property to be sold as an affordable home for a deserving veteran family. The home is currently in escrow for below market value, and all funds will go to BCA’s Affordable Housing Program to help build, renovate and sell more homes to veteran families and low-income buyers.

The property was rebuilt with BCA and Heartland Youthbuild trainees and alumni, BCA Inner-city Apprenticeship, National Association of Minority Contractors, Inner-city Community Unilateral Apprenticeship Committee and BCA Small Community Contractors.

Partners who donated their services/products include Ron’s Electrical Service, Hopson’s Roofing, Skyline Tile and Marble, Comrade Construction, Maurice Sweet Handyman Service, William Concrete Foundations, Doing it Right, Straight Line Painting, Best Construction, Rudy’s Grading Service, Rudy the Carpenter, Ronald Larry Ware Construction Foreman, Shomaree Hameed Carpenter, Idris Hameed, Milholland Solar Electric and Roofing, Hanson Concrete Aggregate, Local Initiatives Support Corporation, Robert Ito and Eli the Builder, Swinerton Foundation, Turner Construction, Douglas and Nancy Barnhart Foundation, Home Depot Foundation, Dixieline Lumber, Image Seed Photography, and the Voice and Viewpoint Newspaper.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this veteran family’s American dream of owning a home possible!
