When people are displaced from their homes, the impact is widespread. Families are uprooted, work and education are disrupted, and homes fall into disrepair, perpetuating a harmful cycle that destroys vibrant communities. The Rocket Community Fund is committed to making systemic investments that prevent displacement and provide families with the resources to not only stay in their home, but turn it into a tool for long-term wealth generation.
Through Our Investments:
