Jasmin Shupper is the founder and president of Greenline Housing Foundation. Educated in business and a licensed realtor, Jasmin has always been fascinated by and drawn to homes. She is aware though, that due to our country’s intentional legislation and policies, people of color have consistently and systemically been denied the opportunity to participate in homeownership (which is the primary tool of wealth building in America!).
Greenline Housing Foundation was birthed to help provide significant solutions to this problem, “one home at a time.” And I am so excited about the work that she and her team are doing! In addition to providing grant assistance for down payments and home maintenance, the foundation also offers financial education to the people they serve. Understanding that we didn’t get to this place by accident, Greenline also intentionally makes accessibility to information on the relevant history part of its ministry. Listen to this conversation and check out the foundation’s website to learn how you can be a part of this good work!
