After more than a decade of ethnic and political conflict the former Yugoslavia has been divided into numerous countries. The breakup of the region has been ongoing since the 1990’s, and most recently Kosovo declared its independence in 2008. These newly-formed countries are still struggling to assert their independent and economic identities. CHF International aids communities throughout the Balkan region to rebuild infrastructure and economies and to restore social cohesion.

CHF was originally established in 1952 as the Cooperative Housing Foundation to provide housing for low-income households in the United States. In the late 1960’s, the organization began applying its expertise on an international level. CHF now works exclusively outside the US and has moved well beyond cooperative housing. CHF has worked in more than 100 countries uniting the people, organizations and resources necessary to ensure sustainable change and development.
