Sakan Community Resource has established a pathway to homeownership focused on East African immigrant families to preserve their religious principles specifically relating to taking out loans, acquiring accurate financial information, leveraging their community’s resources, and successfully buying their first homes. Their success has been open to families mostly in the Metro Twin Cities. This project will develop a new educational and engagement project specifically for Greater Minnesota communities, using presentations informed and designed by the people who live there. The project is in direct response to requests from East African’s in Minnesota’s Southeast, Central, and Southwest regions.
