CSH has taught me so much during the institue. For the last ten years, I've wanted to provide a home for women and children that have been in domestic violence situations. I didn't know where to start. But, thank God for CSH, now I'm developing a 25 unit supportive housing complex for domestic violence. They at CSH have taken each group step by step through the development process, steps to acquiring funds, and actual building of each project. I feel very comfortable in taking on this project now, because I know CSH will be there for me when I have questions,and I know they will be there for me until the project is done. I'm so lucky to be a part of the institute
