Ninguna organización sola puede resolver la crisis local de vivienda. Nos tomará a todos enfrentarlo de frente: el gobierno, el sector privado, los grupos comunitarios y los individuos. Pero creemos que se puede hacer.


Creemos que hay cuatro pasos que pueden proporcionar un camino que la comunidad de Chaffee pueda seguir para asegurarse de que todos nuestros trabajadores locales, familias y personas mayores tengan un lugar seguro y asequible al que llamen hogar.


Nuestro plan estratégico está alineado con este camino. Estas son las cuatro cosas que debemos hacer como comunidad, y las formas específicas en que la CHA está preparada para ayudar.
