At Community Housing Network (CHN), we strengthen communities by connecting people to housing resources. CHN opened its doors in 2001 with funding from Oakland Community Health Network (then known as Oakland County Community Mental Health Authority). At that time, the organization was charged with providing property management for housing for people with disabilities, creation of a Housing Resource Center, and development of additional affordable housing opportunities for people with disabilities.
We have grown rapidly since then in the scope of services and programs we provide, and in the number of people we help.
Our flagship service, the Housing Resource Center (HRC), now receives more than 22,400 calls per year – each call representing someone looking for assistance. Our HRC staff works hard to connect people to vital programs and services to prevent them from becoming homeless, or to help them with their housing needs.
The scope of our Housing Development programs has grown as well, with more than 744 units developed since 2001 and more than $122.3 million in funding leveraged.
