Wheel Estates is a manufactured home park in northwestern Massachusetts—now owned by the 200 families that live there. Nine out of ten households in the neighborhood have an income of 60% of the metro area’s median income and three out of ten have income of only 30% compared to the median. Through a $4.1 million financing deal to purchase and improve the property, now the residents of Wheel Estates are building wealth for a more secure future. Read more about the co-op here.
