How to Save Grandma’s House

Grant Awarded Fall 2021

How to Save Grandma’s House is a seven-week online educational program and fourteen-episode podcast focused on educating and empowering individuals on what it takes to actually save Grandma’s house.
In many cases, losing Grandma’s house is a function of a lack of estate planning, proper estate administration, financial resources, and financial literacy. For individuals up to the task, this process can take years, but saving Grandma’s house can be next to impossible without the proper tools.
Through this program, two licensed attorneys in Pennsylvania and New Jersey will educate families of color and listeners on how to save Grandma’s home by increasing their income, understanding local support programs and how to qualify for them, and understanding the value of real estate, estate planning, and estate administration.
The program’s goal is to “save” $1,000,000 in real estate within two years, or approximately ten properties.
