Westside Future Fund Celebrates Homeownership Success with Justin Jones

We are thrilled to share the exciting news of Justin Jones’ home closing through Westside Future Fund’s Home on the Westside program. Justin embodies the spirit of community retention as both an alumnus and current employee of Morehouse College, residing right here on Atlanta’s Westside. With the support of Westside Future Fund and our partners, including Invest Atlanta and Atlanta Housing, Justin received $115,000 in down payment assistance to make his dream of homeownership a reality.

Home on the Westside stands as Westside Future Fund’s flagship program, committed to three key service areas aimed at empowering residents and fostering community stability. These service areas include providing homeownership opportunities for mortgage-ready buyers like Justin, ensuring quality multifamily rentals, and offering property tax assistance through our Anti-Displacement Tax Fund. Through initiatives like these, we strive to create pathways to economic stability and combat displacement in the neighborhoods we serve.

Jones’ journey to homeownership not only represents a personal milestone but also underscores the impact of collaborative efforts between Westside Future Fund and our partners in creating lasting positive change within our community.

This is my first home,” said Jones. “I have been planning to find an affordable home in Atlanta that I can raise a family in one day. Given the current housing market it started to seem impossible, but thankfully Westside Future Fund was able to step in the gap to help me make a lifelong investment in my future.”

We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Justin and look forward to supporting more individuals like him on their path to achieving their homeownership dreams through Home on the Westside.
