Every parent of a child with a disability has a major concern as to what will happen to my child in the future? Where and how will they live as adults? CCHI, a parent driven organization, answers those questions and concerns. CCHI is working to build mixed housing in local communities. A safe, supported, welcoming place to live with other local residents. Hopefully, one day, every community will have a CCHI.
