Who We Are
CHN is a highly seasoned, nonprofit affordable housing developer and housing service provider that works with its partners to solve major housing challenges for low-income people and underserved communities. We partner with cities and organizations to deliver housing solutions for their constituents. We partner with utility companies, financial institutions, and public agencies to manage and deliver large-scale housing resources to the community. We partner with people—low-income individuals, families, seniors, the disabled and the homeless—to improve their housing stability.
Through our partnerships we have developed over 6,000 affordable homes, and each year serve over 30,000 families through a wide array of housing services.
We work in Ohio and neighboring states to preserve and expand affordable housing, build equitable communities. By investing in affordable housing, we are investing in families, communities and the economy. We are investing in the power of a permanent address.
Principles of Our Work
Why Housing Matters
Every year, millions of people look for ways to move out of poverty. We believe stable, affordable housing is the platform from which they can succeed. We know the power of a permanent address can improve a child’s health, increase a parent’s job opportunities, improve a student’s education and revitalize a struggling neighborhood. By investing in affordable housing, we are investing in families, communities, and the economy.
