CHA is much more than bricks and mortar. It's also about supporting families as they strive for self-sufficiency, and a central goal of Plan Forward is to expand services to more residents, targeted to their needs, and at critical milestones in their lives.

The FamilyWorks model is the cornerstone of CHA’s services for family public housing and Housing Choice Voucher participants. FamilyWorks provides both direct services and referrals, supports residents looking to find new or better employment, advance their education, find programs for their children, or get help in a variety of other areas.
