Mission

Community Housing Associates (CHA) is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to developing and managing affordable housing for low-income individuals and families in Baltimore City who are affected by psychiatric disabilities. By linking residents of our housing with a broad network of mental health services, we enable individuals to live safely within the community, with the greatest independence each can achieve.

Notes from the nonprofit

Community Housing Associates houses those who are homeless and mentally ill. It is our mission to continue to offer a home for those who have no place to call home. We are a housing first organization that does not push treatment on any of our tenants.

CHA Programs

CHA was established as an independent, housing development organization in 1988 through an initiative of the Baltimore Mental Health Systems (BMHS), a public, coordinating agency for mental health services in the City of Baltimore. CHA was launched with a major, five-year grant from the Robert Woods Johnson Foundation. In the seventeen years since it began, CHA has developed, managed or leased housing for more than 630 individuals with mental illness, using a wide range of public and private financing sources. CHA itself has developed 87 units of rental housing and currently houses an additional 120 individuals, leasing units from private landlords. We serve individuals with very low incomes of 0-30% of area median income. Our creative use of resources has ensured that no individual pays more than 30% of their income for housing.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
