Committed to Healthy, Safe, and Affordable Housing
Bridging people and resources, one home and one neighbor at a time.
Community Housing Coalition (CHC) of Madison County is a community-based nonprofit agency that facilitates urgent home repairs to low-income Madison County residents in need of assistance.
For 20 years, CHC has held to its mission – to promote and facilitate healthy, safe, and affordable housing through advocacy, education, and resource development. We are a powerful driver of community engagement in Madison County by providing opportunities to volunteer and give back.
Serving Our Neighbors
Approximately 25% of the Madison County, NC population lives in substandard housing – often residents who own their home but struggle to manage the costs of ownership and general maintenance.
Applicants who request home repair assistance from CHC are assessed for urgency of need, income eligibility, scope of repairs necessary and a holistic overview of circumstances that may be causes of their need. The average CHC client has at least three major home repair needs. Two thirds of our clients are adults over 62 years of age. About one third are people with disabilities. All are living on very limited incomes generally considered very low, as defined by HUD.
Community Housing Coalition and our social enterprise, ReClaim Madison, offer a variety of opportunities to engage with and serve our Madison County community (in compliance with all NC State COVID-19 health and safety regulations).
