Carpenter House Communities

CH_CHC_VertThe lack of affordable housing is a significant hardship for low-income and single parent households, preventing them from meeting the basic needs of nutrition, healthcare, education and financial stability. Carpenter House Communities (CHC) looks to address these issues.

Working in partnership with local government agencies and community/civic organizations, CHC purchases and accepts donated sites within Baltimore City; rehabilitates them; and, makes them available to qualified low-income and single-parent families that would otherwise not be able to experience the dream of homeownership. CHC will also offer educational workshops, financial mentoring/management services and holistic family programs in an effort to positively change the dismal statistics that disproportionately plague low-income families and at-risk communities; directly attacking homelessness, poverty, hunger, joblessness, substance abuse and domestic violence.
