CHN has developed nearly 4,000 single-family homes—2,200 for our nationally replicated Lease Purchase Program and the remaining as homes for immediate sale to low and moderate income buyers. Through these efforts, 2,500 families have achieved the American Dream. Today, we are the nation’s largest single-family affordable housing developer using the Low Income Housing Tax Credit.
CHN is committed to preserving Section 8, 202 and 811 buildings that are well managed but in need of capital improvements. Some of our preservation partners include Lakewood Senior Citizens, Inc., Menwa Inc. and United Church Homes.
Permanent Supportive Housing
CHN is the lead developer in the Cuyahoga County Housing First Initiative to end chronic homelessness in our region. We have developed 11 permanent supportive housing projects totaling over 700 units of housing for chronically homeless men and women. By 2020, chronic homelessness will functionally end in Cuyahoga County.
