“The Real Estate Co-Powerment Series increased my understanding of real estate redevelopment and how to properly work with city and private agencies to accomplish the goals of my community. What followed after graduating from the Series, was the confidence to believe in the process. Confidence then gave way to courage. Some folks participate in the cohort for personal reasons, some for professional reasons. No matter the individual purpose, we all want our communities to be healthy.”
-Denise Edwards, Co-Powerment Series Graduate, Second Cohort
The Real Estate Co-Powerment Series is an education platform, co-created by Omicelo Cares & Neighborhood Allies, to demystify the real estate development process.

Course topics include real estate basics, proforma development, transactional law, tax credits, financial training, land use, green building, and more.

This allows one to obtain knowledge while building a professional network at the same time.
