Chisom strives to bring together residents, community managers, service coordinators and local partners to provide services and social programs most beneficial to those living in our communities. Chisom seeks to empower residents to pursue their personal goals and tap into the many local resources designed to assist them with their needs, including education, finance, health and wellness and career development.
Chisom was founded in 2003 to develop and invest in affordable housing communities where seniors, people with disabilities and those earning low to very low incomes could find a safe, clean and welcoming place to live. The founders resolved to develop social service programs to support and assist residents with their needs in the areas of education, healthcare, wellness and professional skills.
Chisom preserves at-risk affordable housing nationwide and is an owner and operator of over 1,200 units of low-income housing at 17 properties in 10 states. Our portfolio ranges from the suburban plains of Hutchinson, Kansas to the border town of Donna, Texas. We have preserved housing in inner-city Atlanta, GA as well as the rural corners of Walterboro, SC.
