Our work enabling low-income homeownership for the last 20 years proves that homeownership is possible and transformative for families even in Milwaukee’s most challenged neighborhoods. Each year, ACTS helps over 100 families buy and rehab their own homes.
Each time we do, the city of Milwaukee gets a little bit stronger.
ACTS makes it possible for low income families to become home owners. We provide financial counseling, real estate brokerage, rehab expertise, and through ACTS Lending, Inc., rehab loans, so that low income families can viably purchase a home and make it safe and livable.
For us it’s not just about housing. Our job is to make sure all Milwaukee families have the opportunity to transform their own lives and take a stake in our city’s future.
Just ask the many families ACTS has helped into homeownership.

“I felt like a child who couldn’t leave home, but you’re not old enough,” she said. “When you own you don’t have that authority over you.”
