HOUSING NOW

Residents share multi-bedroom housing units leased by CHAT at rents they can afford

CHAT leases multi-bedroom homes from local property owners then sub-leases the rooms to low-income folks in daanger of becoming homeless. If you own some rental property and would like CHAT to manage it and rent it out to a qualified low-income individual or family, please contact our housing director at 530-520-6412.

Housing Now is our flagship program and it houses the majority of our clients. It fills a significant gap in affordable housing in Chico where we are able to lease multi-bedroom houses and then sub-lease the rooms to low-income individuals. We have found that many homeless people have some income but still need help in order to get housing and keep it.

How it works:

  • CHAT locates affordable rental properties.

  • We develop and maintain relationships with sympathetic property owners.

  • We sign the lease, so the property owner is protected.

  • We make bedrooms available to residents at cost.

  • We provide supportive services to enable people to succeed.

  • We provide free regular maintenance for the properties, frequently giving them better maintenance than they had previously.
