Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
To establish a public /private partnership as Williamson County' s leading agency in achieving quality affordable housing for elderly, low income, disabled and work force families of Williamson County Tennessee through housing alternatives to create, supply and maintain appropriate housing by rehabilitation, maintenance and restoration.
The Community Housing Partnership of Williamson County came into existence in October 1994. Established as 501Â©-3 United Way agency the CHP was developed through a partnership of citizens of the Williamson County community, local governmental units including Williamson County, the City of Franklin and the United Way of Williamson County. As Williamson County was and is experiencing tremendous population growth and currently with higher priced housing, there exists a need in the community to provide safe and reasonably priced housing for the communityâ s workforce in this fast paced growth market.
Governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, CHP has seen significant activity since its inception. We have purchased and rehabilitated 17 rental units of low income housing for Williamson County residents through HUD HOME grants from Tennessee Housing Development Agency. These units are occupied by low income residents of the county in conjunction with other social service agencies in the county. CHP has done and continues to do extensive homeowner rehabilitation for substandard housing in Williamson County. Partnering with area churches and local government over 500 elderly, disabled or low income families have been assisted with major repairs to their homes. As the only housing not for profit doing rehabilitation for low income families, this has become an important part of CHPâ s work.
Using financial resources generated through Community Development Block Grant funds from the City of Franklin, Williamson County and funds from United Way, CHP has successfully renovated and sold numerous houses for homeownership in Williamson County. Additional houses have been generated for homeownership through donated properties from area government and through community donations. The establishment of a certified homebuyers counseling program also embellished the work program of single family homeownership for CHP. This has enabled CHP to counsel over 100 families in homeownership and help a number of them secure a home.
In the course of the 12 years since CHP has been established they have built numerous partnerships with community agencies, local government and the public. These partnerships have enabled CHP to go through a period of growth during the first 7 to 10 years of business. In the past few years CHP has been less active and by this strategic plan CHP is intending to significantly improve its performance and activities in Williamson County.
