If you need housing immediately, call 211 and ask to be entered into their Coordinated Entry system.

If you own some rental property and would like CHAT to manage the property and rent it out to a qualified low-income individual or family, please contact our housing director at 530-520-6412.

OUR PROGRAMS

  • Housing Now: This is our main program where we rent rooms in houses or apartments to individuals and families and we provide access to supportive services and case managers.  We also provide property management and maintenance for the residences that are leased through this program, and many properties become in better condition under our management than they were prior to being leased. This program covers the majority of the people we serve.

  • Redwood Housing: In this program in cooperation with CSU-Chico, we master-lease multi-bedroom houses and lease out the individual bedrooms to CSU students who are low-income or homeless. We do not take applications for this program directly but students in need of emergency housing should contact the Chico State Basic Needs Project at CSU and may be referred to CHAT.

  • Everhart Village: This is a proposed project in coordination with the County of Butte Behavioral Health Department where we're planning to develop a tiny-home emergency shelter village for Behavioral Health clients who are being discharged from Enloe Hospital and are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. As of October 2020 we expect the final county board vote in late October after which we'll be able to start building. We're hoping to be able to open it by early 2021.

  • Tiny Home Village Proposals: We're continuing to develop proposals for tiny home villages so that everyone in Chico is able to have safe and affordable housing.
