We have a mission...

Our Mission: To provide and develop service-enriched affordable housing opportunities for lower income households in our communities. (Approved March 24, 2018)

Our Vision: The vision of CHP is to assist low income families in becoming permanently stable by increasing their access to support services and by improving the quality and quantity of affordable housing units within the City of Aurora.

The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little."
– Franklin D. Roosevelt
