I worked at Community Housing Partnership for almost five years, and grow my professional careen with the organization grow. I am a stronger believer of Housing is a Human Right. Community Housing Partnership’s mission is go beyond he clients security housing by helping with client achieve self-sufficiency. I am very excited to be part of CHP as part of the social change, when I hear our client’s success stories.
Having just completed my first year at CHP, I can say that it is truly an amazing place to work. The combination of talented, resourceful, and creative individuals, a solid mission and focus on clients, and and a no-drama environment where people are hard-working and dedicated to giving their best in support of a greater purpose all resonate greatly for me. Not without its external and internal challenges, CHP is committed to working in concert with community partners and City offices to change the trajectory for homeless individuals in SF and eradicate poverty as a social injustice.
Housing is a right. Community Housing Partnership embodies this belief by providing quality housing with supportive services for the formerly homeless. It is inspiring to see how many lives of our residents have changed for the better with the support of our agency. I am proud to work at an organization that is addressing homelessness in San Francisco in an empathetic, solution-centric way.
Community Housing Partnership provides high quality supportive housing and services which helps formerly homeless individuals and families stabilize and meet their goals. CHP staff are dedicated to their work and creative in their approaches. Feedback loops with clients are incorporated to continually improve services.
I've worked at CHP since 2004. CHP started as a project of the Coalition On Homelessness and Council of Community Housing Organizations about 25 years ago. I'm proud to help build on that foundation and watch residents take leadership roles in Community Organizing work. From the Janitors to the Directors, I'm also inspired by my co-workers who put in the hours to help hundreds of people exit homelessness.
This local organization is cutting edge in finding ways to house and serve individuals experiencing homelessness. Currently, they house over 1400 individuals and families who have experience homelessness and are looking to help each person reach self-sufficiency. Nationally, success in supportive housing is measured by housing retention, but Community Housing Partnership is beginning to measure success differently - they want to help its residents move beyond supportive housing to less service enriched settings. It's an honor to be a part of an organization that is not only providing a great service to SF residents, but also envisioning a new future for Supportive Housing nationally!
A pioneer through-and-through. When temporary shelters weren't enough, CHP sprang up - of and by the people - to create a solution to the homelessness crisis by building and operating dignified housing, then integrating it with onsite services. When supportive housing wasn't quite enough, it created yet another solution by launching job training programs, including a social enterprise that gives folks a fair shot at re/entering the labor force. Now, knowing that supportive housing shouldn’t be the end-goal for folks that have overcome homelessness and want to move forward with their lives, CHP is crafting a new paradigm to equip folks with the opportunities to seize their own solutions. A truly empowering force like none-other. Champion their cause like I do, and join the solution(s).
San Francisco is a beautiful city and homelessness is a visible problem that we witness everyday. As a young professional living in the city, one of the things I can do to help is finding the best organization that passionately works toward solving the problem and supporting its mission. CHP is a service based organization that uses supportive housing as a platform to help homeless in our city, and I believe that my donation is putting to good use. Thanks CHP for doing the great work for the city I love and the people in need!
Homelessness is a crushing problem in San Francisco and CHP is one of the most important organizations trying to help.
As an intern in their transitional employment social enterprise, I was impressed by their dedication to their work, the business acumen with which they operated, and, most importantly, the relationships they emphasized with their clients and staff.
CHP has a suite of holistic services that requires incredible thought and care to coordinate and get right. From the case managers working in buildings to financial analysts in headquarters, the uniform dedication to the mission is stunning and rare to find.
