On Saturday, April 22, 2017, The Chatman Group will hold a town hall meeting on Affordable Housing Initiatives at Royal Baptist Family Life Center (4750 Abraham Ave., North Charleston) from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

Anyone invested in the sustainability of housing or struggling to find affordable homes in the Tri-County area are invited to come out to learn about worthwhile initiatives and programs available and express their concerns to community leaders and advocates in a panel discussion.

The goal of this event is to provide real answers and viable solutions for our residents who need help.

Registration will begin at 9:00 a.m. and the program will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m.

Participants in the panel:

Shakeima Clark Chatman
, real estate consultant and author of Possess the Land: The Believer’s Guide to Home Buying

Sen. Marlon Kimpson
, South Carolina Senate District 42

Councilman Mike Brown
, North Charleston District 1

Michelle Mapp
, CEO, South Carolina Community Loan Fund

Bill Stanfield,
CEO, Metanoia Community Development Corporation

Christopher Morgan
, Director, Planning Division at City of Charleston

“Affordable housing should be an issue of priority for all elected officials,” says Sen. Kimpson, “But unfortunately it is not.”

Mortgage lenders and nonprofit organizations, including South State Bank, First Citizens Bank, The Center for Heirs Property, Gateway Mortgage, Increasing Hope Financial Training Center, Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America (NACA), Origin SC, and National Association of Real Estate Brokers, (NAREB) will be on hand to share programs designed to assist residents with achieving homeownership.
