Our Mission

We seek to help families, one family at a time, through the blessing of homeownership in the West 30's neighborhood.

About Us

West 30’s Redemption Company was founded in January 2017 to provide affordable housing for lower-income families in the West 30’s neighborhood in Covington.

What is Our Foundation?

What Is Our Foundation?

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that was created to help families in the West 30’s overcome multi-generational poverty through ownership of a good quality affordable home.  Typical middle class families in America participate in the wealth creation process through the purchase of their home.  Following years of payments on their mortgage loan and inflation increasing its value, most families’ largest financial asset is their home.  Families who rent all of their lives do not get to participate in that wealth creation process.  Helping families become homeowners for the first time is one way they can begin to make the move from poverty toward prosperity. For more detailed information, click here.

What Have We Done?

We have provided houses for 56 families to date, including 38 renovated homes and 18 newly built homes. We have moved four houses into the community. During the course of our work, we have demolished 17 blighted houses. Our commitment to the West 30's community when we demolish a house is that we build a new home in its place. Every time that occurs, the community benefits from one less blighted house in the neighborhood, as well as one more new, good quality affordable home. If you would like to apply for a new or newly renovated home, get more information here.

How Are We Supported?

The costs of acquiring, renovating and building our houses are typically funded through 75% commercial bank loans and 25% equity, which comes from “Supporter Loans”. The Supporter Loans are typically 2-3 years in term, are unsecured promissory notes that pay 5% interest, and vary in amount.  Our smallest Supporter Loan is $1,000 and our largest is $100,000.  If you would like more information about our Supporter Loan Program, click that link.  There are also opportunities to sponsor families or help support our organization through a tax-deductible gift, click here for more info.

Are We Faith-Based?

Absolutely!  We are committed to sharing the love of Jesus Christ with all who serve and to all who are served through our ministry.  We work with area churches through Faith Partnerships that are spiritual partnerships rather than financial partnerships.  We have a goal of having a Faith Partnership for each house we work on. The Faith Partnerships vary in structure, but they include some or all of the following components provided by members of the partner church – their prayers, their presence, their gifts, and their service.

Meet Board of Directors

We are thankful for the leadership provided by the Board of West 30’s Redemption Company.  The company was founded by Bryan Burns in January 2017 and Bryan now serves as the Executive Director.  It is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of 24 Directors who meet quarterly, serve on operating Committees, and they are charged with running the non-profit organization.  The Board is an accomplished, diverse, and distinguished group of leaders representing the faith community, business community, non-profit sector, government and community leaders.  We pray that their service will be a blessing in their lives and in the lives of those families whom they will serve.
