Earlier this month Colette Haywood, a legacy Vine City resident, officially closed on her home on Foundry Street. Haywood is the first legacy resident of Vine City to purchase a home through Westside Future Fund’s (WFF) Home on the Westside program. She is also the first single family home sale for WFF in the Vine City neighborhood; WFF’s previous home sales have been in the English Avenue neighborhood. Haywood’s home was built by Atlanta Habitat for Humanity through their Community Builders program.
WFF created HOTW as part of our commitment to community retention and serves residents with key “live, work, and learn” connections to the Westside. WFF’s HOTW program provides key services for legacy and future residents of the Historic Westside, specifically in the English Avenue, Vine City, Ashview Heights, Atlanta University Center and Just Us neighborhoods. Those services include:
- Rental Housing
- Anti-Displacement Tax Fund for Legacy Homeowners
