I have worked with CHW for several years and these are the most passionate people you will ever meet in your life! Their mission is always at work through their employees, volunteers, Board members and residents. I am very lucky to be able to partner with CHW, this is an exceptional organization.

Community Housing Works has been a terrific partner for Foundation for Women. CHW has provided training for our staff as well as for the women who come to FFW for our microcredit, education and business support services. CHW and FFW serve a similar population - those trying to achieve self-sufficiency through better financial practices and pursuit of income generation. It's a natural fit, and the staff and management of CHW really get this. Through their actions they truly embody the idea of collective impact. This approach of working together will acheive a common outcome -- a better community for all.
