Our main housing program!
We lease and buy multi-bedroom houses then sub-lease rooms to individuals at market-rate rents they can afford
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 multi-bedroom 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 like goal setting and financial management to residents who want them to enable them to succeed.
We provide free regular maintenance for the properties, frequently giving them better maintenance than they had previously.
