The CHC Foundation was established in 1985 to support the activities and goals of CHC Addiction Services. Since then, CHCF has not only supported CHC, but partnered with them to obtain many grants and to provide programming in Summit County and surrounding areas.
Over the past 20 years, CHCF has raised millions through public fundraisers and community development. These fundraisers have not only supplemented many CHC programs, but brought attention to many issues facing Summit County residents regarding substance abuse, addiction, recovery and housing.
Today, CHCF has moved into business partnerships with CHC, including land ownership, property rentals and housing development and construction. This partnership has seen the formation of the Ohio Multi-County Development Corporation (OMCDC), a wholly owned subsidiary of the CHC Foundation, that concentrates on providing housing for specific populations in a nine county radius.
Throughout the years, CHCF has grown with CHC by providing support and funding to help supplement new and innovative grants, housing and other programming for the people of Summit County and its surrounding areas.
The CHC Foundation Board elects positions for a term of two years.
