What We Do

We harness the power of home to change lives. 
We break cycles of generational poverty.
We fill financing gaps when families need it most.
We create substantive return on investment. 
We maintain financial solvency and sustainability.
We create region wide ripples of prosperity.

 At CVAH we support low-income families who are ready for homeownership to take their next step. The effects are more than someone simply owning a home though. We believe homeownership is also an investment in community. We are proud our work strengthens the social fabric of our valley and creates fertile ground for our citizens to grow. We believe in addressing the big picture with a personal focus.
