SOUTH JORDAN, Utah – The UHOUSI Initiative (UHOUSI), a comprehensive plan created to increase homeownership among African Americans, other minorities, and millennials, is pleased to announce that Timothy W. Wright III has joined the initiative as a National Co-Chair. Wright joins Pastor Phillip G. Goudeaux of Sacramento, Calif., in co-chairing the national program sponsored by CBC Mortgage Agency’s Chenoa Fund, committed to promoting homeownership education and housing opportunities.
Mr. Wright received a dual Bachelor of Arts in political science and economics from Claremont Men’s College in 1977, a Juris Doctor from UCLA School of Law in 1983, and earned a Masters of Divinity degree from the Chicago Theological Seminary in May 2018. He expects to receive his Doctorate in Prophetic Ministry in 2022 from McCormick Theological Seminary, specializing in Liberation Ecclesiology and faith-based community economic development in urban communities.
As Managing Partner of Operations for Quintairos, Prieto, Wood & Boyer, P.A., Wright brings an enormous portfolio of experience to UHOUSI, including having served as Chicago’s first African American Director of Economic Development, President Clinton’s first Director of Domestic Policy and in various capacities in the administrations of Presidents Bill Clinton, George H. W. Bush, and George W. Bush and as Chief of Staff for Congressman Bobby L. Rush.
Wright also served in roles as a member of the Illinois Steering Committee for the 2020 Biden Presidential campaign, an elected delegate to the 2020 Democratic National Nominating Convention, and served on the voter protection team in Michigan for the Biden campaign.
“Timothy brings a wealth of experience in fair housing and civil rights and a personal desire to help change the trajectory in America’s communities of color,” said Miki Adams, CBC Mortgage Agency president. “We are honored to have Timothy come on board to continue the important work of UHOUSI, in helping create equitable access to homeownership for minorities. The Chenoa Fund has assisted over 21,500 borrowers nationwide with their down payments.”
The UHOUSI Initiative provides valuable resources to educate potential homebuyers about the home buying process, which can be complicated and challenging to navigate. UHOUSI equips buyers with a road map, assisting them in searching for a qualified lender in their area, providing down payment assistance resources, and finding a licensed real estate agent.
