What is Needed to Secure Our Homes Secure Our Place?

At Chhaya, we believe housing is a human right. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it is monumentally clear that everyone needs to have a safe home in order to mitigate our current public health emergency and any future ones. Being secure in one’s home is just as much an issue of public health and safety, as it is an issue of financial and economic necessity. We also recognize that many of our community members are commercial tenants, whose livelihoods are at risk because of the pandemic. The extraordinary housing needs at this time are broad and interconnected. With this interconnectivity in mind, Chhaya’s team has crafted a holistic set of principles with the aim of alleviating the rent, debt, and cost burdens of tenants, homeowners, and small businesses. Learn more about Chhaya’s “Secure Our Homes Principles”.
