Community Housing Solutions has several Signature Events every year. Each of these events requires support from our community, either in terms of volunteer time or financial support. We appreciate all that you do to make these events – and the resulting impact on our neighbors – possible year after year.

 

May - Operation Inasmuch (Spring)
Operation Inasmuch is a partnership between Community Housing Solutions, Housing Consultants Group and the City of High Point. This one-day event occurs twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall, and is focused on home repairs and neighborhood revitalization in the core city of High Point.

July - Ramp-a-thon
Ramp-a-Thon builds wheelchair ramps and restores access to families with mobility needs. Ramps built during this annual week-long event improve the quality of life for people who desire to live independently and restores hope and dignity to these homeowners. Ramp-a-Thon helps both elderly homeowners, as well as individuals of any age who have limited mobility. Ramp-a-Thon is a partnership between CHS and the Catholic HEART Work Camp (hosted by St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church) who provide the volunteer labor. More than 80 high school and college students give a week of their summer to serve building the ramps. Ramp-a-Thon is funded through the generous support of local businesses, faith groups and civic organizations. Click here to see pictures of this year's event.

 

September - Paint the Town 
Paint the Town is an annual one-day Community event that targets a neighborhood in need of support. CHS partners with local businesses, corporations and faith organizations to do exterior repairs, painting, and landscaping for one neighborhood. This year's event will take place on Saturday, September 22. Paint the Town is designed not only to assist low-income homeowners with the preservation of their homes, but also to lift the neighborhood by the aggregate effect. Repairs completed during Paint the Town often allow families to keep their homeowner’s insurance in place and thus decrease their risk of foreclosure. Eligible homeowners are elderly or disabled individuals living on a fixed income who are unable to do the repairs themselves.

 

October - Operation Inasmuch (Fall)
Operation Inasmuch is a partnership between Community Housing Solutions, Housing Consultants Group and the City of High Point. This one-day event occurs twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall, and is focused on home repairs and neighborhood revitalization in the core city of High Point.

 

November  - Ambassador’s 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!
