NFL Legends Team With Nonprofits To Create New Playbook To Address Nation’s Affordable Housing Crisis By Revitalizing Neighborhoods

The United Athletes Foundation (UAF), Builders of Hope and Consumer Education Services, Inc. (CESI) today announced an initiative, Bring It Home, that will revitalize blighted communities by developing quality, safe, affordable housing and teach financial literacy to the new homebuyers and renters moving into the renovated houses.  The organizations will pilot this innovative program in Baltimore and Atlanta. NFL stars Ray Lewis and Reggie Howard will serve as Bring It Home’s local ambassadors in Baltimore and Atlanta, respectively. The initiative is designed to help targeted communities renovate housing and repopulate neighborhoods, which in turns helps stabilize home prices, increase safety, and spur additional investment in the surrounding community. Builders of Hope will dedicate $30 million of private investment to the program and will rehabilitate approximately 500 homes in each market.
