Who We Serve

We believe in each person's right to a safe, affordable, quality home.

Our residents include families transitioning from homelessness, single parents and their children, seniors with limited incomes, and recent immigrants. Living in a CHH apartment allows families to afford other necessities such as food, transportation, and healthcare.

Our average household earns less than $17,000 a year. In neighborhoods where two and three bedroom homes are rare, CHH works to develop large units for families. Nearly a quarter of our residents are children.

60% of CHH residents earn less than 30% of the area median income (AMI); 33% earn between 30% and 60% of AMI; 7% earn between 60% and 80% of AMI. CHH buildings have apartments set aside for individuals who are disabled or require attention for special needs such as mental illness, alcohol and drug abuse, or developmental disabilities.
