Kevin Seawright is once again working on new endeavors to transform the inner cities of the US and bringing lower income people into the fold. He’s proudly announced the rollout of RPS Solutions, a housing development organization that works with construction companies and real estate agencies to renovate homes sell them at more affordable prices in different neighborhoods.
Seawright wanted to start a company that was more inclusive and diverse in its client base, and he felt more could be done to bring new homeowners into Baltimore. One young man who Seawright used to mentor, Jerrel Brown can now buy a home thanks to the new program at RPS Solutions.
