Chico Housing Action Team (CHAT) is happy to report more growth and continued financial stability since our last report in November 2022. We enjoy the support of over 163 monthly sustaining donors, which is a great source of sustainable income. In 2022 we were able to raise a total of $ 96,099.31 from sustaining donors. We are continuing to grow with a financial assistant and a property management assistant. Starting in January we have 7 interns for public health, social work, and communications and we have a total of 31 employees.

 

On the program side, CHAT is now housing over 229 residents, including nearly 40 children, in over 166 total households.

 

CHAMP, the CampFire Housing Access Model Program, continues to assist Camp Fire and other wildfire survivors in securing rental housing through landlord incentives and the payment of program participants' move-in costs. In addition, the CHAMP program provided case management services to program participants, which included helping Camp Fire survivors with obtaining federal housing vouchers. CHAMP has supported 157 people to be housed. In addition, the CHAMP family program has been able to secure funding for 1 year beyond its current term which was supposed to end May 31, 2023. This will provide more case management and subsidies for families who are still unstably housed 4 years after the tragic Camp Fire.


CHAT is also in the process of finalizing buying 2 new properties that have a total of 12 bedrooms which will be part of the Housing for All program. This program provides permanent housing as well as support services.

 

Thank you so much for your continued support for our work in creating affordable housing options for folks in the Chico community. It's because of our many generous donors and great organizations like GlobalGiving that we can continue supporting our clients who are now in homes and developing future projects to create more low-income housing for those who are still living in homelessness.
