In order to be considered for housing a CCHO Housing Application must be completed and mailed it to the Housing Office. Each application is date stamped upon receipt and forwarded to the Senior Case Manager. Applications are processed in order of those received earliest. A case manager at one of the locations will contact applicants for screening. If you have any questions regarding eligibility criteria please refer to the Tenant Selection Plan.

Should you meet eligibility you will be scheduled to meet with the property manager. If you are an applicant for a particular program (Section 8, Shelter Plus Care, Supportive Housing Program) please ensure that you meet the relevant criteria for admission and bring documentation of homelessness and or disability.


We are an equal housing opportunity provider. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, familial status, national origin, or handicap.

Please bring:

  • documentation of income
  • social security card
