If You Urgently

Need Housing

If You Need Housing and Are Currently Homeless

The first step is to call "211". This is a 24-hour/day community information helpline for Butte and Glenn Counties. When you call, ask to be entered into their "Coordinated Entry" system which is a database of residents in need of housing used by all of the affordable housing organizations in the county.


Then fill out an online application for CHAT housing (click here). We will keep your application on file and call you for an interview if we get an opening in a situation that seems like it might work for you. We do not have a lot of openings, but we do occasionally have openings for families or individuals. Some of our our housing is in a larger house where you would have your own bedroom, but share the kitchen, bathroom, and living room.

If You Were Displaced by the Camp Fire and have some income:  You may be eligible for our CHAMP program where we try to match you with a property owner who has housing available for CampFire survivors. If we are able to match you we may be able to help with security deposit or first month's rent. We also provide incentives to get landlord to rent their properties to people who lost their housing in the CampFire. Click here to see our CHAMP page for more details.
