“Now more than ever our local communities need support systems to help our neighbors in need deal with economic issues brought on by challenging life events. For those struggling with housing issues, CECH has been, and pledges to continue to be, an active participant in that community support system. CECH's mission is accomplished through "neighbors helping neighbors," with a loyal network of volunteers and donors working together to deliver financial assistance for immediate housing-related needs as well as hope for a better tomorrow.”
