Tom’s next guests are two African American women who are helping to address homelessness in Baltimore, and helping women learn the skills they need to build houses, and build wealth.
LaQuida Chancey is the founder and CEO of Smalltimore Homes, an enterprise that works to provide people living in poverty with a variety of affordable paths to home ownership.
Shelley Halstead heads Black Women Build, a group she formed in 2017 to train Black women to restore Baltimore’s vacant housing.
Shelley Halstead is the founder and CEO of Black Women Build, a not-for-profit organization that fosters home ownership and wealth-building by training Black women in carpentry, electrical, and plumbing skills to restore vacant and deteriorated houses in West Baltimore.
LaQuida Chancey and Shelley Halstead join us on Zoom.
