A severe shortage of affordable homes is creating poverty in California and putting our families and future at risk.
• State investment that is needed to break ground on affordable developments off the ground has plummeted 69% since 2008. Meanwhile, rents have skyrocketed across the state.
• Today, there is not a single county in California with enough affordable homes and apartments for the people who need them.

CHC is leading with solutions that put affordable homes in reach.
• CHC members build affordable homes that lift Californians out of poverty and build community strength.
• Through education and advocacy, CHC is working to increase funding and eliminate barriers to affordable development.

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