Our Housing Programs:
Housing Now, where we rent rooms in houses or apartments to individuals and families and provide access to services.
Hand Up Supportive Housing (HUSH), where we rent homes to families and provide access to services
CHAMP, Campfire Housing Access Model Program. Our newest program started Jan 2020, funded via a grant from the California Community Foundation, which creates incentives for landlords to rent to low-income people
If you are currently homeless we *may* be able to help you with housing. The first step for anyone seeking to affordable housing in Butte County is to call "211", a 24-hour/day community information helpline, and ask to be entered into their "Coordinated Entry" system. This is a county-wide database that is used by all of the affordable housing organizations in the county.
After getting registered with them you can fill out an application for CHAT housing. 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. We would 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.
Additionally, if you were displaced by the Camp Fire, you may be eligible for a special program called CHAMP, in which CHAT would be able to help you pay a deposit, and provide some incentives to get a landlord to rent to you, assuming you would be able to afford the rent. If you would like to apply for the CHAMP program, please contact TamRa Wichma at 530-520-6928.
