Turning vacant buildings into homes and in the process creating new homeowners. That's the mission of a program called Renew Woodlawn.

It provides financial incentives and grants to help buyers transform buildings and stabilize the neighborhood.

Renew Woodlawn has been such a success, a similar program is being planned for Chicago's Chatham neighborhood.

We're talking about that program, the impact and importance of homeownership to a neighborhood.

Deborah Moore, the director of neighborhood strategy for Neighborhood Housing Services Chicago is here.
