Contact Name: Don Gilmore
Community Housing Development Corporation (CHDC) was founded in 1990 by local leaders committed to eliminating blight, improving housing and creating better economic conditions in North Richmond, a neighborhood that straddles the border of the city of Richmond, California. Today, CHDC has added over 240 owner-occupied homes throughout Richmond, added, preserved or rehabilitated over 850 quality rental units, and collaborated to improve public services, environmental safety, streetscapes and crime reduction/prevention in a growing area that now spans at least three counties. While continuing its original North Richmond focus, CHDC is recognized statewide for its homeownership, asset building and foreclosure recovery programs, and has advocated and trained nationally on affordable homeownership and mortgage lending issues. CHDC is a HUD-approved comprehensive housing counseling agency, leads several East Bay collaborative efforts on economic development and foreclosure recovery, and has a development pipeline of 500+ housing units.
Create and sustain vibrant communities that make a positive impact in people’s lives by providing high quality affordable housing and neighborhood services.
