Changing Faces

This initiative is designed to address the community and economic development within the Urban Inner City, specifically within the Greater Houston Metro areas.  It is our desire to provide resources that will increase home ownership, increase financing awarded to small business owners, increase the number of minority businesses.

FACTS

  • Blacks are rejected twice as often for small business loans than Whites of comparable credit (Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, “Prison and Jail Inmates at Midyear 2019,” April 6, 2019).
  • White males with a high-school diploma are just as likely to have a job, and tend to earn just as much as Black males with college degrees (Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, “Prison and Jail Inmates at Midyear 2019,” April 6, 2019).
  • 53% of Black men aged 25-34 are either unemployed or earn too little to lift a family of four from poverty (Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, “Prison and Jail Inmates at Midyear 2019,” April 6, 2019).
 
We propose the following solutions to address the identified problems:
  • Consortium of pastors, community leaders, business professionals and stakeholders to articulate our platform to elected officials dedicated to political oversight.
  • Offer results of funding research to facilitate grant writing and awarded funds to targeted population (increased numbers = increased bargaining power).
