Our Mission

CHAPA’s mission is to help the affordable housing of our communities and reduce the burden of government.  We help those who cannot afford the necessities of life.
Our Mission includes fostering the creation, management, and preservation of service-enriched affordable housing for people of lower income.   


Our Goal

Our nonpartisan goal is to help resolve the preeminent quality of life issues of human suffering, poverty and affordable housing by providing creative
and innovative solutions to the problems affecting our communities.


Our Philosophy

A prerequisite to creating safe, decent housing for families in need of assistance is caring individuals and organizations willing to work together with the common goals of creating affordable
housing and ensuring the availability of indispensable social programs that enable people to empower themselves, establish self-sufficiency, strengthen their families and help their neighborhoods
to be safe, productive communities.


Social Services and Educational Programs

Social services are delivered by our nonprofit partner Life Skills Training & Educational Program Services (LifeSTEPS).  Since 1996, LifeSTEPS has helped our most vulnerable individuals and families forge better lives.  Its Mission is to provide effective educational and supportive services to maximize the strengths of individuals and build resilient communities. LifeSTEPS does this by providing comprehensive social services to the residents of affordable housing communities.  Low-income families maintain stable housing through case management, education and emergency assistance services. LifeSTEPS, is there to catch people before they fall deeper into poverty and avoid homelessness by adhering to the highest standard of service possible.  Its vision is that every person touched by LifeSTEPS will be empowered with the skills, resources and support to maintain stable housing and break the cycle of poverty.

“This we know: the earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth.  All things are connected like the blood that unites us all.
Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it.  Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.”
