The Chester Housing Authority (CHA) was chartered in 1937. Today it owns and operates or co-manages six housing developments, serving approximately 1,000 families and senior citizens. The CHA also assists another 1,600 families through its administration of its Housing Choice Voucher Program; approximately 500 owners have invested in that program.
Our mission is to provide quality, safe, and affordable housing for low and moderate-income households in a discrimination-free environment. In doing so, we strive to integrate CHA residents and developments into the neighboring communities and to serve as a catalyst for revitalization and development for participant families in the city of Chester, Pennsylvania.
