Welcome to North Valley Housing Trust

  • The Mission

    Focus and leverage local resources to build community and advance our economy by creating affordable homes and eliminating homelessness, thereby enhancing self-sufficiency and sustaining families.

  • The Need

    There are over 1,000 homeless individuals in Chico, and over 2,000 homeless individuals in Butte County. Most of these individuals have lived in Butte County for more than five years, and a growing number are families with children. Homelessness hurts our economy by wasting public resources. A number of studies have shown that providing housing and supportive services for homeless individuals saves public funds by reducing hospitalization, police calls and incarceration. The existence of homelessness is unacceptable to a caring and healthy community.

  • The Solution

    The following elements characterize efforts that have proven successful in eliminating homelessness, as demonstrated by a multitude of effective strategies across the country.

    • Direct engagement
    • Immediate housing
    • Holistic assessment
    • A focus on building self-sufficiency
    • Extensive collaboration
    • Intensive case management
    • Regular outcome measurement
  • Our Success

    Many local efforts are characterized by the elements described in the "Solutions" section (to the left), and have successfully moved people from homelessness to self-sufficiency. Go to our Success Stories section to read stories about how lives have changed for the better due to these efforts. While we have demonstrated how to make significant change, the resources currently available fall well short of the need. That’s why the North Valley Housing Trust was created.

Success Stories

About North Valley Housing Trust

 North Valley Housing Trust’s mission is to build affordable homes and support networks- two assets that everyone needs to be successful. We do this by raising local private and public funds to leverage other resources from outside our community, multiplying the impact of your donation. For example, over the last two years, NVHT raised $700,000 locally that leveraged $500,000 from the State of California. Donate Here:  http://nvcf.org/fund/north-valley-housing-trust/
