CHP Resident Services offers education activities – such as summer/afterschool programming and GED preparation – to increase the knowledge, skills and abilities of individuals leading to greater self-sufficiency, school achievement and/or employability, which leads to increased opportunities and family and housing stability.
In 1997, CHP opened one of the first certified HUD Neighborhood Network Centers in the United States. Since that time we have added community centers and after school programs in multiple rental communities to support our effort to strengthen families and build sustainable communities.
Resident Services programs at CHP properties address the needs and difficulties of families that often lead to housing instability. Our coordinators work towards reducing the multiple risk factors often facing families and children living in poverty and building family self-sufficiency through programs such as:
- Personal skill building
- Afterschool youth programs
- Computer access and literacy
- Work force development activities
- Financial fitness
- Homeownership readiness
- Adult literacy and ESL classes
- Referrals to outside community resources
