ON-Lion Letter
ACTS Housing in Milwaukee helps low-income families become homeowners by offering financial counseling, brokerage services, rehab assistance, and other support.  Families save on housing costs, benefit from safer and more-stable living conditions, and build wealth.  Because most ACTS buyers purchase formerly vacant, vandalized foreclosures, their activities also make neighborhoods safer and help preserve the value of the city's housing stock.  

At a recent ACTS event, Yussuf Mursal, a former Somali refugee who came to the United States by way of Kenya, spoke movingly about what it means to his family to own property and experience freedom.  Many ACTS families are immigrants.  A few of their stories are documented in a brief YouTube video.

Milwaukee's Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation supports ACTS Housing.
