Ways To Help


“It’s not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving.” Mother Teresa

It does not matter how much you have. As Mother Teresa said, the amount of love is important. Do not hesitate. You can totally change the future of an individual or a  family.

Here at Community HousingWorks  we build affordable apartment communities. We have been doing this successfully for over 30 years and have developed over 3, 600 rental apartments in 42 communities. Plus, we have been recognized throughout the country for great development. In fact, we have received three national American Institute of Architects Awards and two national Fannie Mae Maxwell Awards and has been recognized in Time, The Washington Post, Business Week.

However, providing a home is just a one-dimensional help. We provide fundamental help that will help forge stronger futures.

First, we help residents regain financial stability with our program called Financial well-being. We educate them about avoiding eviction and starting a new future. The program has served over 9,000 residents since 2004 and has been recognized as the country's best-practices program in a national review.

Second, we run a program that provides educational support for young children which is called Next Generation Success Program. We believe that education is the best way to stop the cycle of poverty. Therefore, we also award the VALOR scholarships every year to students who achieve outstanding academic performance.


Third, our health and wellness programs support self-empowered residents to manage their own health. A healthy body is essential in order to function effectively and efficiently. As you know, teaching to fish is better than giving a fish.



In these ways, we are giving practical help to our residents. This is the surest way of expressing your love. Your donations or contributions allows us to continuously create a difference in other people’s lives giving them hope. Any form of help is still help. If you are interested in some volunteer activities, we are happy to inform you that we run various volunteer programs to get involved in.


The moment you donate with love, the future of a family begins to change. Join us today with your great love.
