Raised by 744 people in 6 months
Created February 1, 2019
An initiative to help displaced people who are homeless. Purchasing, renovating, furnishing properties to place the misfortunate in a comfortable living situation. 

Candice is Chicago’s very own residential redeveloper. She fixes and flips homes all over the Chicagoland. “This has driven me to a new purpose, its time to put together a more permanent solution for the homeless!!” Who wants help?? I will acquire property on the south side and I’m going to use the Gofund Me platform to raise the money for renovation so that we can provide housing for the homeless.

Bringing in other entrepreneurs and businesses to help provide job training and opportunities, then connecting these individuals together is my mission!
