Community Housing Partners (CHP) is prioritizing the health and welfare of our residents, employees, and partners in response to COVID-19. We are following local, state, and federal public health guidelines and doing our part to slow the spread of coronavirus. While the pandemic has impacted our day-to-day operations, we are continuing to fulfill our mission of creating homes and communities that are healthy, sustainable, and affordable.
A Commitment to Healthy Communities
The CHP Emergency Response Team meets regularly to monitor state and federal guidance and review our policies and procedures. CHP has taken active steps to keep our communities and work sites safe:
All corporate and property offices are following health and safety protocols. We are requiring daily health screenings for employees and partners on site at CHP workplaces. Property Management and Energy Solutions employees are following COVID safety protocols when entering a residence.
All community centers, community rooms, and common spaces have been closed. We have communicated to residents and employees the importance of social distancing, as well as CDC and health department guidelines.
All employees have masks and personal protective equipment (PPE). CHP has also required all employees to complete training on PPE, cleaning and disinfecting, and hand washing. We are following best practices to keep our work sites safe.
We are providing opportunities for residents and employees to be vaccinated. CHP has partnered with healthcare providers to host vaccination clinics at several of our properties. We are encouraging residents and staff to do their part and get the vaccine.
We have a list of resources for residents related to public health, vaccines, employment, social services, and utility bills.
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.
