Long-term neighborhood growth and sustainability are dependent on the availability of a skilled and educated workforce. This is where HTP Homes steps in with our “earn and learn” job pathway model that provides the skills needed for careers in the construction industry.
To help bring long-term financial stability to underserved Baltimore communities, we acquire vacant properties that serve as rehabilitation projects to train at-risk and justice-involved young adults. Program participants learn construction-trade skills that help facilitate permanent employment and livable wages.
We’re bringing economic stability and housing availability to the neighborhoods that need it most by rehabilitating vacant properties and providing safe and secure homes.
“We’re going to teach these young people how to grow. Teach them skills – carpentry skills, electrical skills, plumbing skills. We’re going to help them to a point that they can earn a good earnest living in life. And that’s what it’s all about.”
Aaron Thompson, HTP Homes Co-Founder and CEO
