Adult

Adult Education

CHRC offers learning opportunities for adults in a wide range of subjects. Also, this program helps to prepare persons to receive a GED certificate. Additionally, the CHRC works with the career center to encourage residents to gain insight into basic office skills, keyboarding, and introduction to computers, Microsoft Word, word processing, office procedures and job skills. We plan on partnering with Columbia State Community College to offer other education and training sessions in the future.


Money Management

CHRC offers personalized help with managing individual or family finances through our network of partners. We offer budgeting workshops through the family center and GAP Community Development. Also, we can make referrals to other agencies for consultation and management purposes.


Resident Council

The purpose of the Resident Council is to improve the quality of life for all residents of CHRC. During Council meetings, tenants can voice concerns or issues, suggest changes in policy, advocate for programs that will improve the quality of life for residents, and more. All residents are encouraged to attend.
