Message from the CEO: JEFFERY K. PATTERSON

I am pleased to present the 2018 annual report to the community and the 2018-2023 Strategic Plan for CMHA. This plan was developed over the past year with input from various residents, landlords, participants, community partners and stakeholders on how we can best serve the residents of CMHA and the community at large.

 

This plan is both a rededication of our commitment to our residents and program participants and a blueprint for building upon that responsibility. Continue reading and view more about the plan in the 2018 Annual Report.
