You’re Invited! Home Ownership & Wealth Focus Group for Black, Indigenous & People of Color

Fierce Foundation is committed to opening the door for people to create generational self-sufficiency and in order to reflect the values of our organization, we are committed to expanding education and access through understanding the gaps that exist.

As an organization, we turn to you, the Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) within the 7 Rivers Region to ask, “how can we support you in creating wealth through homeownership?” We will listen and then act accordingly.

We are currently creating Black, Indigenous & People of Color focus groups to provide a space to discuss a variety of important topics related to the lived experiences of what was, what is, and what could be for Black, Indigenous & People of Color in home ownership along with the opportunities, perceptions, and barriers that exist in the 7 Rivers Region.

This focus group will be facilitated by Carolyn Colleen, the Founder of Fierce Foundation, in collaboration with B.L.A.C.K. Black Leaders Acquiring Collective Knowledge

This focus group is supported by several local agencies who represent this population including but not limited to Hope Restores, GLADC, Social Responsibility Speaks, and Enduring Families Project

This focus group is invitation only, for Black Indigenous People of Color living within the 7 Rivers Region. If you identify as Black or Indegenous or a person of color, please register below.
