What Do We Do at Community HousingWorks?


Community HousingWorks (CHW) is a nonprofit organization that develops and operates affordable community housing throughout California to help working families, children, and seniors. Allow us to present the following figures that represent our accomplishments at CHW over the past 30 years.



CHW currently offers affordable houses for over 9,000 people. We believe that a stable home can stabilize emotions and lead to new opportunities. We aim to forge stronger futures and help with positive changes.



CHW has developed 3,670 apartments in 42 communities that are beautiful and award-winning. Our works have been recognized nationwide for excellence in development. We were even able to expand our jobs to Los Angeles, Fresno, and the San Francisco Bay Area.



Education is one of the definite ways to make a difference. CHW awards VALOR Scholarship to high achieving CHW residents who want to pursue post-secondary education opportunities. In 2019, 30 CHW residents received $ 30,000 scholarship. This scholarship is for students of all ages and can be applied to community colleges, four-year universities, career and technical certifications, and military education.
