More than 170 Philadelphia homeowners attended Home Legacy: Preserving Homeownership and Wealth, on Saturday, October 14, 2023. Home Legacy was a unique event aimed at empowering low-to-moderate income homeowners to preserve their homes and intergenerational wealth. The event was organized by Affordable Housing Centers of PA (AHCOPA) with help from Community Legal Services of Philadelphia (CLS), and sponsored by Wells Fargo.
Home Legacy provided homeowners with critical information and resources to protect their most significant asset: their home. Participants engaged with experts on critical topics, including estate planning, tangled titles, the safe use of equity, real estate tax reductions, and accessing affordable home repair programs.
