SAN FRANCISCO — February 23, 2022 — Kiavi, a leading provider of financing to real estate investors (REIs) through its technology powered platform, today announced a strategic alliance with Corporate Community Connections (CCCI), Inc. The alliance will provide tools and access to financing to minority real estate investors helping them revitalize aged homes across the country and gain financial freedom.

“Our country faces a housing shortage with two-thirds of homes over thirty years old. We need to come together as a nation and solve this challenge. Organizations like CCCI are vital in helping us reach underserved communities and helping minority real estate investors rehabilitate communities across the nation,” said Michael Bourque, CEO of Kiavi. “We are thrilled to collaborate with CCCI and look forward to helping minority real estate investors gain access to investment tools and innovative financing.” 

As part of the relationship, individuals will have access to training and financing to purchase and rehabilitate single-family homes in distressed communities. Kiavi will provide them with access to timely capital and support.

Participants will also be encouraged to take educational courses offered through CCCI’s initiative, the dfree® Financial Freedom Movement

“Since 2005, our team has guided participants to become free from debt, delinquency and deficits, and encouraged them to use the freedom to establish deposits, dividends and deeds. The Kiavi and CCCI collaboration will help members of the dfree® family build wealth and achieve economic freedom,” said Dr. DeForest B. Soaries, Jr., CEO of CCCI. “I am excited about working together to create positive change across the nation.”
