Nelson Agholor, Las Vegas Professional Football Player
"My parents didn’t think it was even possible to buy a home, and the instability as a child made football very challenging. That is why everyone should know there is help and funding out there to help families, particularly Black families, buy a home."
Elias Benjelloun, Head of Homie Helps Las Vegas
Homie was founded with the mission to make homeownership easy, affordable and accessible to all. That is why we are honored and grateful to help create this much-needed community partnership.
Shanta Patton, VP of National Association of Real Estate Brokers
Make Homes Possible can help you get access to the same resources that helped me buy a home.
Cedric Crear, Las Vegas Councilman
"It is particularly gratifying to see this amazing group of community leaders come together to craft a plan that creates a realistic and attainable path to homeownership. Without a program like this, many of our valley’s Black families would not be able to achieve the American dream of owning their own home."
Ken Evans, President of Las Vegas Urban Chamber of Commerce
"The Black homeownership gap is worse today than it was over 50 years ago during segregation. We must act now and with conviction to address it.”
