Baltimore-based RPS Solutions is helping resident attain home ownership for the first time. RPS Solutions founder Kevin Seawright says this is an excellent way to rebuild stressed neighborhoods and help people achieve their dream of owning a home.
The corporation, opened in 2015, renovates and constructs homes in the greater Baltimore area. Seawright says it has always been his goal to help residents afford their own home. “Owning your own home and taking pride in that ownership is the first step in developing your own wealth and providing a stable environment,” said Seawright.
The Baltimore Housing Authority is working alongside Kevin Seawright and RPS Solutions to help with the venture.
One of the greatest success stories involves the son of a former colleague of Seawright’s. Jerel Brown is now in his own home thanks to RPS Solutions.
“This is a testament to how well the program works,” said Seawright. “It’s really great to help hard-working people achieve home ownership.
Kevin Seawright is a native of Pittsburgh but has called Baltimore home for a number of years. He has worked on the state and federal level handling a number of financial related jobs. He worked briefly as CFO of Newark’s Community Economic Development Corporation (CEDC) before relocating back to Baltimore.
