To cultivate pathways that measurably increase self-sufficiency for low-to-moderate income (LMI) homeowners and extremely low income (ELI) renters
To date, the largest and longest LMI project that Beloved has operated was the Covid-19 funding distributed as grants to eligible Texas homeowners under the program administered by the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA).
Beloved serviced 302 cases under the TDHCA grant program with a total amount of over $818,770.10 in mortgage, HOA fees, property taxes, insurance, and utilities payments dispersed to eligible, LMI homeowners.
While the majority of those 302 cases were in Dallas County, the subsequent payouts also assisted eligible, LMI homeowners in Brazos, Collin, Kaufman, Tarrant, Williamson, and Harris counties, making major impacts in Black, Brown, and rural communities across North Central Texas. Those 302 cases covered a one-year project period, i.e. September 2022 to September 2023.
In addition to his role as the CEO of Beloved Community Center, Kiven T. Roberson, Sr. leverages his seat in C-suite nonprofit administration with an extensive background as well as licensure in life, property and casualty, and claims. His skills sets allow him to better implement results-driven, transformative, Low-to-Moderate Income (LMI) programs. Most recently, he provided fiscal and personnel management for CARES Act rental/utility assistance implementation. His undergraduate and graduate educational credentials come from two (2) different, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). He earned a B.A. at Huston-Tillotson in 1995 and a M.S. from Texas Southern University in 2003.
He also is a licensed minister.
