volunteers working on front repair

The work of CHS is possible because of the generous support of our community and people like you. We are careful stewards of your donation and of our resources. Ninety cents of every dollar given to CHS goes directly into our programs. CHS creates hands-on volunteer opportunities for businesses, faith organizations, local colleges, civic organizations and community members. We leverage over 9,000 hours of volunteer labor annually, stretching our impact and your donation. We also use local and minority subcontractors on repairs that require a licensed professional, keeping these funds in the community. CHS is mindful of our physical resources, accepting gift-in-kind donated materials that we store in our 3,500 square foot warehouse. Everything from shingles, flooring, paint, and plumbing fixtures to tools are reused and repurposed from job-to-job, eliminating waste and decreasing overhead.

Ambassadors Breakfast

Every year, CHS holds a breakfast to celebrate our work and the community that comes together to make it happen. Our Ambassadors Breakfast is a unique moment, where homeowners, volunteers, CHS Staff and Board members, and community supporters all come together to celebrate work well done, and look forward to what is to come! Due to concerns with COVID-19, the 2020 event will be a VIRTUAL event and will take place on Tuesday, November 17 at Noon. You may register by clicking here


During the Ambassadors event, we will be offering a text-to-give option. Information about this text service is below:
