Community Housing Partnership’s (CHP) mission is to help homeless people secure housing and become self-sufficient. CHP is an outcome focused nonprofit that fulfills its mission by developing and managing high quality supportive housing and providing services to homeless individuals, seniors and families to help them rebuild their lives and break the cycle of homelessness. At CHP, we believe that – given the right support – all people possess the capacity to achieve a high degree of self-sufficiency.
ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Community Housing Partnership (CHP) is one of the nation’s first and preeminent practitioners of supportive housing. CHP develops and operates high-quality permanent affordable housing with comprehensive property management and on-site resident support services. Based in and serving San Francisco, CHP currently owns and/or operates eighteen housing sites that serve formerly homeless adults and families, and has new projects in the pipeline as well.
CHP offers a comprehensive approach to helping formerly homeless people rebuild their lives, and is widely recognized for its engagement of residents in advocating for affordable housing. CHP serves individuals, families, seniors and children with a continuum of services including case management, certified job training programs, a social enterprise that employs formerly homeless adults, behavioral and primary care, youth & family services, leadership development and community organizing.
With an annual operating budget of approximately $31 million, CHP serves over 2,200 individuals each year through its programs and services, and has an outstanding staff of over 270 people.
ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY
In 2015, CHP adopted a bold five-year strategic plan to implement a newly developed theory of change. Chief among its five-year commitments to transformative impact, CHP will leverage affordable, supportive housing – unlike anything ever formally committed to within the sector – to pioneer a national model that provides tailored pathways to self-sufficiency and non-services-enriched housing for current residents who have overcome homelessness. This, in turn, will open up a significant portion of apartments to redeploy to those requiring their proven intervention to end their homelessness.
By 2020, CHP hopes to demonstrate that supportive housing can leverage sustained upward mobility, while enhancing – through the vacancies created – the current toolkit for ending homelessness for the thousands who remain languishing on our nation’s streets and cycling through costly systems of care.
Toward this end, CHP has begun a major capacity-building effort and repositioning of programs and services to align with the new model, which will be implemented over the next several years. With the support of a committed foundation, the agency has also moved towards a data-driven culture and is currently introducing and implementing a performance management system for both staff performance and outcome achievement.
