Sustaining our Community


Community Housing & Resources, Inc. (CHR) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization with the mission to provide affordable housing for families and individuals who work and who serve the community of Sanibel.

People sustain our community. Community Housing and Resources works to ensure that Sanibel remains a vibrant community where caring, experienced people are committed to your health, safety, and welfare.

The 2018 year to date median sale price of a home on Sanibel is just about a million dollars thats $1,000,000. These steadily increasing prices make keeping working people in Sanibel one of our community’s biggest challenges. Housing is the foundation of a community: it supports our local economy; it enables the delivery of quality care and services; it is where individuals find stability and families grow. Your support is essential to our continued success.
