25808Contra Costa Interfaith Housing (CCIH) provides permanent, affordable housing and vital support services to homeless and at-risk families and individuals in Contra Costa County. CCIH has grown from serving 72 people (in 2004) to more than 1,000 Contra Costa residents today.  In just the last year, CCIH has added 52 units of affordable permanent housing to chronically homeless families and individuals. Housing is just the start.  Programs such as on-site mental health support for trauma-impacted children, academic-based afterschool programming, eviction prevention, case management services, evidence-based parenting classes, rental readiness programs, and summer youth enrichment support residents to achieve their greatest degree of independence possible.
