Each year, Hometown America partners with the Real Estate Networking Education and Work program (RENEW), a California-based nonprofit that brings both employment and housing to disadvantaged women caught in the cycle of poverty and homelessness. In conjunction with Women’s Empowerment, another California nonprofit, RENEW recruits, supports, trains and mentors students in property management.
During the October session, Hometown hosted an educational property tour and facilitated a Q&A session at its Creekside Estates property in Citrus Heights, California. Then, on November 3, 2023, Hometown held a graduation ceremony for the RENEW students at Creekside Estates. Following graduation, students and their guests attended a congratulatory reception at the Creekside Estates clubhouse. Additionally, the Hometown America Foundation is proud to provide financial support for students’ Chromebooks and other needs.
From our team members to our residents, we appreciate the likenesses and differences of each person, and we are focused on creating communities that put diversity, equity, and inclusion practices at the center of our daily work. This is why we sought out a partnership with RENEW. We’re very proud to be able to leverage our team’s expertise for good and make a real-life impact in the neighborhoods of the communities where we operate.
We congratulate RENEW graduates Clairissa Birdshead, Malia Booth, Ameila Carrillo, Melissa Finch, Kyra Hattix, Angela Young and Benicia Simpson on their achievement. You inspire us, and we look forward to watching their continued success in the property management industry.
