Success at CHF is defined by the percentage of homeless families who attain self-sufficiency. This includes the number of families: housed and employed, completing the 18 month to 2 year program, who find affordable housing, who purchase their own homes, and the number of individuals who attend and graduate from trade school, colleges or universities. Staff members conduct exit interviews with all graduates and document residents’ accomplishments and program satisfaction. These statistics are compiled and maintained in a database. Results are published in the Annual Report.
