A severe shortage of affordable homes is creating poverty in California and putting our families and future at risk.

• There is not a single county in California with enough affordable homes and apartments for the people who need them.
• State and federal investment that is needed to break ground on affordable developments has plummeted 66% since 2008.
• Meanwhile, rents have skyrocketed across the state.

CHC is leading with solutions that put affordable homes in reach.

• Our members build affordable homes that lift Californians out of poverty and build community strength.
• Through education and advocacy, we are working to increase funding and eliminate barriers to affordable home development.

Home is the foundation for life. Join CHC to create affordable homes for Californians.
