About Us

Community Housing Partnership believes that a home has the power to stabilize a person’s life.

Homelessness affects everyone in San Francisco. It can feel overwhelming and it’s hard to know how to make a difference. Together, we are helping thousands of people experiencing homelessness find a permanent home and build a better life. With a home people can improve their health, heal from trauma, cook for their family, find a job, begin paying rent, feel a sense of dignity, and contribute to the community.

Together, we’re building a new future for our neighborhoods and the city we love.

Mission

Community Housing Partnership’s mission is to help people experiencing homelessness secure housing and become self-sufficient.

Purpose

Community Housing Partnership is an outcomes-focused nonprofit that fulfills its mission by developing and managing high quality supportive housing and providing services to individuals, seniors and families experiencing homelessness to help them rebuild their lives and break the cycle of homelessness.

Philosophy

We believe that—given adequate and tailored support—all people possess the capacity to achieve a high degree of self-sufficiency. In order to support our residents to reach their fullest potential, Community Housing Partnership embraces and undertakes the following practices:

  • Housing – We believe that individuals that have experienced homelessness need safe, supported and affordable housing to stabilize their lives.
  • Engagement – The experience of homelessness can be isolating and erode one’s sense of hope and trust. Our staff is trained to engage with residents to build trusting relationships and to create hope.
  • Choice – Our staff provide non-judgmental support to residents to reduce the harm in their lives, assisting them to make informed choices and stabilize their lives.
  • Employment – We know that people that have experienced homelessness want to stabilize their lives and go back to work. With the right opportunities and supports, offered by Community Housing Partnership staff, our residents gain employment and become more economically secure.
  • Advocacy & Community Leadership – Our history and work are rooted in community organizing. We are committed to work with our allies to create new solutions and policies that advance our mission and promote social justice, and we work hard to cultivate leadership across the organization—among residents, staff, board, and the broader community.
