Community Housing Partners (CHP) is closely monitoring the news about COVID-19 and following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state health departments. While the current situation has had a considerable impact on our day-to-day operations, we are continuing to fulfill our mission of creating homes and communities that are healthy, sustainable, and affordable.
CHP Prioritizes Resident and Employee Welfare
The CHP Emergency Response team is meeting regularly to monitor state and federal guidance and review our policies and procedures. CHP has taken active steps to keep our residents, guests, and employees safe:
All corporate and property offices have been closed. Employees are working from home, and CHP is forwarding calls so that residents and partners can reach staff. Maintenance employees are only completing emergency work orders related to critical health and safety needs, and they are now following new safety protocols when carrying out essential duties.
All community centers, community rooms, and common spaces have been closed. Events hosted by CHP or outside partners have been canceled. We have communicated to residents and employees the importance of following social distancing recommendations, as well as CDC and health department guidelines.
All Energy Solutions field activities have been suspended. These include weatherization, Crisis Heating Assistance, Emergency Home and Accessibility Repair Program (EHARP), Home Repair, and subcontracted services.

We need to come together to help those most at risk. CHP provides housing and services for over 2,700 low-income seniors or residents with special needs. These residents are vulnerable to COVID-19 and are currently not able to leave their homes. If you are able, please consider a monetary donation and select “COVID-19 Response” from the dropdown menu.
From our roots as a volunteer organization serving housing needs in Appalachia, CHP has grown into a multi-state organization nationally recognized for our capabilities and commitment to innovation and continuous improvement. Although CHP’s footprint has greatly expanded over the decades, our mission continues to focus on creating homes and communities that are healthy, sustainable, and affordable.
