Chico Housing Action Team's Mission, Board, and Staff

Our Mission

The mission of the Chico Housing Action Team (CHAT) is to ensure that every person in our community has access to housing they can afford. CHAT seeks to help develop housing opportunities and supportive services needed to keep people in housing, while nurturing human relationships that will help people help themselves. 

CHAT does not discriminate based on race, color, religion, age, familial status, disability, national origin, gender, sexual orientation or any other arbitrary basis. Reasonable accommodations will be made for persons with disabilities.
