Make an impact today.

Make a difference.

Community Housing Network makes sure that residents have more than just a place to stayWith your help, we make sure they also have the resources to truly live and thrive.

When you donate and volunteer with CHN, residents know they are surrounded by people who are invested in their well-being and encourage their growth. They belong to a community that empowers them to move forward, knowing that we’re always here for them.

If you are interested in creating a positive impact in your community, there are multiple ways you can support our mission.
