The HOA Initiative will EMPOWER, INFORM, AND CONNECT individuals to transition into the beneficiaries of homeownership. We transform economically disadvantaged communities into those with economic power and control of their legacy.

Maresa Tumminia ​is a young entrepreneur and third year student at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. An avid activist and enthusiastic community volunteer, Maresa actively seeks opportunities to aid and educate local communities through her leadership of The Mati-x Foundation’s latest community empowerment initiative: Hope and Opportunity in America – The HOA. The HOA initiative stems from her family’s dedication to productive activism, and was specifically designed to provide effective and appropriate education tools and strategies for minority families striving to achieve their goal of homeownership as the first step towards economic independence and prosperity.
