Community Housing Resource Center
CHRC is a HUD certified housing/financial counseling agency with a twenty-two year history of helping families build financial capacity through advocacy, education, and one-on-one counseling. What had been and still is the agency for first time homebuyer education, CHRC has now become the go-to agency for those struggling with too much debt, low credit scores, student loans, high medical bills and other financial barriers that may impact their ability to secure housing, get a job, or buy a home. CHRC’s financial assessment, counseling and guidance can help to resolve issues with creditors, improve credit scores, reduce or eliminate debt, open up avenues to managing student loans while moving families towards financial stability and self-sufficiency. In addition to the confidential, no judgment counseling, classes are offered on how to develop the skillsets necessary to better money management and increasing financial capacity.
We want to rock awareness for CHRC's financial counseling services that anyone in our community can access; We want to promote opportunities for volunteers to get on board and take part in events and activities and, We want to broaden our funding efforts and expand avenues for giving by making more people aware of what we do and what it means to our community. And, we want to shed light on the fact that when the homeless mother of two is able to secure housing as financial barriers have been eliminated; the senior couple who longs to age in place no longer fears the calls from debt collectors as those issues have been resolved; and the family with the dream of homeownership sees it fulfilled, then we all benefit from a stronger, more vital community. (These examples represent actual CHRC cases).
