Founded in 1988, Community HousingWorks (CHW) is a nationally recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that develops, rehabilitates, preserves and operates affordable apartment communities in San Diego and throughout California.
Our unique approach extends beyond an affordable place to call home. In addition to providing working families and seniors with stable homes in healthy communities, we layer in powerful programs, services and connections to resources. These tools help people attain financial stability, improve their health and overall well-being, and set school-age children up for success in the classroom and beyond.
CHW owns over 3,600 apartments in 42 communities statewide, serving more than 9,000 working families, children and seniors.
CHW is an exemplary-ranked member of the national NeighborWorks Network®, an award-winning affiliate of UnidosUS and a member of the prestigious Housing Partnership Network.
