Retired NFL player Keion Carpenter and The Carpenter House Foundation, Inc.,Present The Carpenter House 2nd Annual Holiday Give Back

Since leaving the NFL in 2007, former Atlanta Falcons’ safety Keion Carpenter has embarked upon a bold philanthropic mission by reaching out to communities of color through his foundation, The Carpenter House, Inc. as well as collaborating with other charities. The 31-year-old Baltimore native has been speaking to youth up and down the East Coast about the importance of getting a good education, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, developing good character traits, and pursuing their dreams.

The Carpenter House Foundation’s main objective is creating affordable housing for Baltimore families with limited income and family challenges; making the dream of homeownership a reality. Through his foundation, Carpenter will also offer educational workshops, financial mentoring/management services and holistic family programs in the effort to positively change the dismal statistics that disproportionately plague low-income families and at-risk communities.
