HOME is just the
Contra Costa Interfaith Housing 2015-2016 Impact Report
It All Starts Here Contra Costa Interfaith Housingâ€™s mission is to provide permanent, affordable housing and vital support services to homeless and at-risk families and individuals in Contra Costa County.
Commitment to Serve Working Poor Families and Individuals: People working in low-paying jobs and living near or below the poverty line
Homeless Families with Special Needs: Families who have been homeless with challenges such as physical disabilities, mental illness, post-traumatic stress disorder, addiction, child welfare involvement, low life skills, under-employment, and under-education
Chronically Homeless Single Adults: Adults who have been chronically homeless and are living with mental illness and/ or addiction
People Living with Chronic Illness: People living with HIV/AIDS
Dear Friends and Supporters: A home is just the beginning. Imagine walking into an apartment of your very own for the first time after spending countless nights unsure of where you and your family will sleep. Finally, your child has a safe place to rest. Your worries about harsh winters, dangerous streets, or school enrollment have vanished. The future looks promising. But what’s next? For formerly homeless and very low-income CCIH families and individuals, a home is just the first step. Contra Costa Interfaith Housing’s model of permanent, affordable housing paired with essential supportive services helps newly housed people move beyond mere survival. Supportive services like case management, employment support, mental health counseling, and academic enrichment help children and adults truly thrive. As CCIH embarks on a leadership transition, we reflect on the critical milestones the agency has accomplished with your help. CCIH’s quality support services and partnerships with affordable housing agencies have increased our ability to respond to the needs of our neighbors who are homeless or at-risk. None of this is possible without our generous donors, volunteers, and community partners. We are proud of our successes, despite the increasing housing challenges in Contra Costa County. The lack of affordable housing and ever rising costs associated with living here create new obstacles every year. Nonetheless, we added 32 units to house 48 chronically homeless adults last year, and will expand to house and serve 20 more homeless families this year. As they

How We Help Permanent, Affordable Housing
CCIH creates affordable housing units through ownership and/or master leasing of apartments and obtaining funding to subsidize the cost of housing so that it is affordable to very low-income families and individuals.
Assists residents to create individualized life plans with focus on employment, education support, life skills, parenting, and sobriety.
Assists residents to avoid eviction by helping them budget, increase income, negotiate with landlords, and create long-term strategies toward self-reliance.
On-Site Mental Health Support
Provided by licensed mental health clinicians for both youth and adults.
Brokerage of Mainstream Services
Assists residents to access basic needs such as food, transportation, health care, and employment.
Helps people living with chronic illnesses, such as HIV/ AIDS, find and keep permanent housing.

DID YOU KNOW?
Studies show that more than 1/3 of impoverished students are not ready to enter kindergarten, and by the time they reach the fourth grade at least 50% will not read at grade level.
WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
Most children raised in CCIH housing proceed to higher education or find steady employment. For example, Michael, an East County 2014 high school graduate, is thriving and entering his third year of college in Utah. Majoring in Criminal Justice, Michael recently secured an internship with the FBI.
Together, Weâ€™re Making Lasting Change Communities Working Together Volunteers from White Pony Express deliver food twice a week to Garden Park Apartments. Residents and White Pony Express volunteers work together to coordinate delivery, set up the food pantry, and oversee its management. Residents have taken ownership of this program, making the food pantry run seamlessly and efficiently.
Breaking Ground Donors and volunteers Pacific Coast Landscape, Phil vanderToolen, Lafayette-Orinda Presbyterian Church, and HomeAid partnered to transform the grounds of Garden Park Apartments for a healthier and more beautiful community.
Spreading Holiday Cheer Many formerly homeless residents have gone years without holiday traditions. People with little income seldom have the means to celebrate with hearty traditional meals or gifts. Multi-faith holiday parties have become a staple for CCIH residents. Volunteers bring meals, games, and crafts. This time together has become a wonderful tradition residents and volunteers look forward to every year.
Education for All Volunteers are the cornerstone of CCIH Homework Clubs. They offer a safe and consistent space for children to learn and grow.
Summer Learning Children from very low income families seldom have the opportunity to attend summer camp. CCIH volunteers lead summer camps at our housing sites or donors provide scholarships to community camps. Children broaden their horizons with camps aimed at increasing math and science skills, as well as sports, art, dance, and music.
