CBICC Expo 2014 Recap

CBICC Expo 2014 BoothThank you to everyone who stopped by our booth at the CBICC Expo 2014.  Our booth was in Presidential Hall of the Penn Stater.  The expo was held on November 20 from 12:00-6:00pm.  In addition to around 100 companies and organizations, there were also 12 local caterers serving delicious food and drinks like cupcakes from Dolce Vita Desserts and butternut squash soup from Harrison’s Wine Grill & Catering.

At our booth, we hoped to start a conversation with our community about what home means to them.  We had over 30 people participate and visually share what home is to them… safety, family, comfort, love.  Home is ___ to you? I would love to know your answer.  Contact me by e-mail at director@cchlt.org or by phone at (814) 571-1179.

Home is where the heart is!

We all need a home. CCHLT is one of many non-profits that help to meet that need in Centre County. We specifically focus on supporting first-time homebuyers with low- to moderate-incomes.  So far twelve permanently affordable homes have been created, and we are looking forward to two more in 2015.

Each guest to our booth was invited to Connect to Home, our first event on Monday, December 15. This casual, open house event is meant to be a conversation starter as our Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers would love to share ways that you can help make a difference and information about the need for housing in our community. Also, if you are looking to own your own home, we will have all the information you need to start the process to qualification and homeownership.

Home Is _____. display with community memberAs a non-profit, we couldn’t do what we do without the support of individuals, businesses, foundations, etc. You made the first twelve permanently affordable homes possible.  Join in to make the next two homes and more possible as we pursue new land opportunities.  If you would like to join in giving back to your community through a tax-deductible donation, contact me by e-mail at director@cchlt.org or by phone at (814) 571-1179.  Thank you!
