Our name has changed, our strategy improved, but our aim remains the same: we build and transform lives. The building part comes first — creating affordable housing opportunities in rental, condominium, supportive and senior housing communities. For many, this alone is transformative: an affordable home becomes the boost they need to achieve their personal goals. For others, additional services make all the difference to reach the transformation they seek: whether it’s to reduce debt, improve health, achieve homeownership or overcome personal obstacles. These transformations take many shapes, and so must our services, which means collaboration is key. Our in-house personnel work together with a great group of sub-contractors, volunteers and partners such as Laurel House, Catholic Charities, Americorp VISTAs, Bridgeport Community Pharmacy and more. Today we provide services to approximately 38% of our portfolio — either directly through CHP or with supportive services partners — and we’re always on the look out for new resources to expand this reach.
