PROJECT: Reclaim is a home ownership program created by Urban Homeworks. The goal of the program is to facilitate successful home ownership—helping to create healthy, vibrant, and sustaining communities.

Through PROJECT: Reclaim, we equip and support people who have been declined a conventional home mortgage due to credit challenges and create an opportunity for them to affordably own a home. Households will participate in a credit enhancement program and debt reduction, and the homebuyer’s exposure to financial risks and real estate speculation will be minimized.
