Community Housing & Resources, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization with a mission of providing affordable housing on Sanibel for families and individuals who:
- work full time on Sanibel and/or

- Sanibel citizens who are disabled
I hope that you will join the list of members and supporters of CHR by sending a contribution to the address below or by clicking the “donate here” button on this page. You see, many people assume that rents cover the costs of maintaining our properties. The City of Sanibel’s annual contribution covers much of our administrative expenses, but not the cost of maintaining and insuring 74 rental units. Our rents range from $350 minimum to $1200 based on household income and size. While we strive to keep rents affordable for island workers and seniors, such rental income does not cover the long term costs of maintaining buildings and grounds at eleven locations. Given the increasing costs of appliances, materials and insurance, your support is more important than ever.
We welcome both in-kind and cash donations. Please consider making a contribution to CHR today. Your gift is tax deductible and will be put to work immediately to better the lives of Island workers.

CHR = Contribute, Help, and Relate
Contribute. Your donations to CHR are tax-deductible. We welcome any amount. Also, if you would like information about making a Legacy Gift, give us a call at 239-472-1189 and we’ll give you more information.
Help through Volunteering. We have many projects around our properties and a few special events where we could put your skills and talents to good use. Just give us a call at 239-472-1189 and let us know that you are interested in donating some of your time.
Relate our Mission to Others. Be an Ambassador for CHR. If you are an employer, tell your staff about affordable housing on Sanibel. We can provide you with printed materials to hand out and to display in your break rooms. Others can spread the word simply by telling people that there are options for affordable housing on Sanibel through CHR. Send people to this website for details.
Sponsorships of CHR’s special events, such as our annual Mardi Gras fundraiser, are a great way to support CHR in a fun way that creates a win-win for your business and for CHR. For more information, call the CHR office at 239.472.1189
