TROY MI – Community Housing Network has received a $10,000 grant from the Consumers Energy Foundation supporting their mission of finding housing for local families.
The grant will support the mission of the foundation, which began in 2001, of providing innovative housing solutions that provide a positive social impact. The grant will go a long way toward helping connect people in need to housing resources.
“We are honored to receive this grant,” said Community Housing Network President Marc Craig. “These funds will help us continue to help people overcome barriers to getting and remaining housed during this very challenging time.”
Community Housing Network’s flagship service – its Housing Resource Center (HRC) – receives more than 17,000 calls annually. The HRC’s staff works tirelessly to connect individuals to the vital programs and services that prevent homelessness.
Community Housing Network is a nonprofit organization committed to providing homes for people in need through proven strategies of homeless prevention, housing assistance and development, community education and referral, advocacy, and additional services. The organization carries out its work in Oakland, Macomb, and Wayne counties. Community Housing Network has been recognized by the Detroit Free Press as a Top 100 Workplace and was honored as a Crain’s Cool Place to Work for the last six consecutive years.
