Take Action

The Charlottesville Low-Income Housing Coalition’s progress and successes to date stem in large part from the overwhelming support of local residents, citizens, and members of the broader Charlottesville community. However, in order to continue to advocate for racial and economic justice in the city, CLIHC needs your support! Here are a number of ways to get involved:
