Our History

Our Origin, Our Name

CCHC, a non-profit organization, began in 1969 when local citizens, many from the area church community, met to address the lack of decent and affordable housing in Newport County. From that origin came our name, Church Community Housing Corporation.

In the years since, CCHC has developed over 900 homes, rehabilitated another 1,500, and has integrated neighborhood revitalization, energy efficiency, and ecologically conscious building materials into our developments.

Our Mission

Based in Newport County, Church Community Housing Corporation (CCHC) is dedicated to helping low- and moderate-income persons in Rhode Island to live in safe, decent, affordable housing and neighborhoods
