2017 Annual Impact Report

Dear Friends,

We are pleased to share with you our annual Community Impact Report. With your support, Community Housing Partners continued to create homes and communities that are healthy, sustainable, and affordable in 2017.

Whether expanding our geographic reach with new and renovated properties, helping a single mother achieve her dream of homeownership, weatherizing the home of a family in need, or inspiring residents to lead healthy lives, we remain committed to our core values of collaboration, innovation, integrity, quality, service, and sustainability. CHP is deeply grateful to our staff, volunteers, donors, and business and community partners for helping us create and serve vibrant communities, and we are excited to continue this work in 2018.

A Year of Growth

After CHP weatherized their home and installed a porch with a ramp, Richard Burton, who discovered his artistic side after a stroke, thanked the crew with a painting. Read more.

Many property managers would be discouraged to learn that a reliable tenant had found another place to live. But when Tara Smith, a resident of Heron Woods Apartments in Inverness, Florida, announced that she was moving into her newly purchased home, the staff at CHP were overjoyed. View more.

When asked about health, Primrose Place resident Barbara “Brandi” Peterson recalls an early memory with her grandmother. “From a very early age, I can remember her telling me that it doesn’t cost you anything to smile at someone,” she said. “You never know what they’re going through. A smile can lift one’s spirits and has the power to heal.” Read more.

Building off of more than 40 years of experience creating affordable and sustainable homes, CHP reported a year of growth in 2017. The nonprofit added eight real estate developments to its rental portfolio, creating new or renovated homes for more than 600 low-income individuals and families in Virginia, Maryland, and South Carolina.
