You can be a hero in our community

This year, on Tuesday, November 29, 2016,
Chautauqua Home Rehabilitation & Improvement Corporation,
better known as CHRIC,
is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving.  

Giving Tuesday is a global effort to raise awareness and support for nonprofit organizations 
serving communities and people across the world.
Last year, more than 45,000 organizations in 71 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday.
Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, 
resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities.

We hope you will consider supporting CHRIC with a meaningful gift. 

In 2016, 141 families and individuals have been impacted by programs offered by CHRIC
because of donors like you.  
In 2017, we hope to exceed this achievement by 50 percent.
But we can’t do this without you.

CHRIC - Helping our Community with safe affordable housing.

This lovely home and its owners were helped through our multiple programs.

The homeowners went through our First Time Homebuyer Education program in 2006. 
Over time, they needed additional assistance to make improvements and increase efficiency. 

CHRIC partnered with the Village of Brocton, utilizing funds from their Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) award to transform the home from a deteriorated state,
to its code compliant, much improved condition that you see today.  
CHRIC assisted in obtaining new siding, roofing, windows, doors, porch renovations, and other interior improvements. 

With your generous giving, we can continue to write grants and provide these services
to the neighbors in our communities who need these important services. 

Your gift will change the lives of more people in our community,
like CHRIC's First Time Homeownership
& CHRIC’s Housing Rehabilitation Programs in 2017.

Gifts of any size from donors like you make our work possible.
Your contributions provide a flexible resource that can be used to meet the many needs of our community and those who call it home.

And since we are a member of the NeighborWorks® America network, your support for CHRIC is leveraged by the resources, technical assistance and training we receive from this national nonprofit. The impact of this combined support means that together, we can do more in our community.
