Homes First is a CHDO organization.

A "CHDO" (pronounced "CHO-DOE") is a Community-Based Housing Development Organization-a special status which the government grants to nonprofit community organizations engaged in housing development activities that benefit low and moderate income families. To be a CHDO, 1/3 of the members of our board of directors must be low income or represent a low income neighborhood association.

There are several significant benefits of becoming a CHDO, including access to government funding and property tax exemptions, which help us keep our rents low.
