The Center for Higher Educational Achievement is committed to community and personal development by providing programs and environments which nurture individuals and families.
Who is CHEA?
Currently, CHEA operates two programs: CHEA Adult Skill Center and CHEA Sustainable Community Housing Program. The adult skill center provides academic and job training programs for students age 25 and older. This center is the only academic program in Genesee County (Michigan) to offer such training for the older adult learner, with the absent of minors who are often enrolled in remedial and alternative education programs. CHEA provides one-to-one academic training in: English as A Second Language (ESL), Adult Basic Education (ABE), Pre General Education Development (Pre GED), and General Education Development (GED). Additional programs such as job readiness training, financial literacy, and basic computer keyboarding, is also provided at the center.
Through CHEA Sustainable Community Housing Program, CHEA has a continuous focus to reduce blight within the local community. Helping low and moderate income families or individuals obtain affordable shelter, which is a basic need towards self-actualization, is the sole Purpose of CHEA Sustainable Community Housing Program. The homes are newly remodeled by hired, retired U.S. veterans, and inspected to meet HUD & Michigan’s housing codes. CHEA has numerous partnerships throughout the city and Genesee County, which continues to strengthen the organization, as well as our local community.
Our goal is to provide greater economic opportunities through education, job training, and affordable housing, for individuals and families to have a self-sustainable life.
