Nondiscrimination Housing Policy
It is the policy and commitment of CHEA not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, disability, religion, familial status, or source of income in the rental of its residential dwellings. CHEA affirms its policy of equal housing opportunity pursuant to state and federal fair housing laws.
As we continue to grow and expand our services, the need for affordable housing is on the rise for our students as well as our community. In addition to identifying current homeless students, we are also experiencing an increasing number of enrolled American single women age 55 and older who are also homeless.
Eliminating barriers to academic success and building safe communities is a part of CHEA’s organizational Goal. Helping low-income families or individuals obtain affordable shelter, which is a basic need towards self-actualization, is the sole Purpose of CHEA’s Sustainable Community Housing Program.
