Community Housing Network Gives a Helping Hand to People in Need

Dec 15, 2022 11:42:34 AM

DCS Supports the Community Housing Network in Helping Southeast Michigan Families

Dimensional Control Systems supports the Community Housing Network in its mission to reduce poverty and homelessness through housing assistance, the development of affordable housing, community education, and advocacy.

DCS is a proud annual sponsor and volunteer for the Community Housing Network. As a local non-profit, they provide much-needed services to those in need, helping build up the community and reduce homelessness and poverty. 

If you'd like to help too, there are many ways that you can. 

The Community Housing Network's Holiday Giving Program 

We are excited to offer another year of giving through our Holiday Giving Program. Support for those facing eviction and those in need of housing resources is more vital now than ever. With your help, we will be able to provide ongoing supportive housing resources, stable housing, and other essential items for the people we serve, during the holidays and throughout the year.


Many of the people we serve live on very low fixed incomes and have ongoing needs for even the most basic items. Here are a few ways you can help:

Adopt A Family Holiday Gift Baskets

Our Adopt A Family Giving Program was started in 2004 to help make the holidays brighter for the people we serve, including formerly homeless families and individuals.

Holiday Gift Baskets

This year, we will be providing Holiday Gift Baskets for the people we serve. We are asking donors to start with a laundry basket and fill it with cleaning supplies, personal care items, gift cards and other family gifts. A list of suggested items is available here.

Please note: All Holiday Gift Baskets and Gifts are due by Monday, December 12, 2022.

When shopping Amazon, choose Alex Cracchiolo – Community Housing Network (Chesterfield, MI) as your shipping method for your donations to go directly to Community Housing Network.

Shop for a Cause!

Do your holiday shopping from the comfort of your home and give back to CHN at the same time! We have teamed up with some awesome online retailers who have committed to donate a percentage of their sales to us! Check out our Shop for a Cause page by clicking here.

Fundraise on behalf of Community Housing Network

Rally your friends, family, and networks to support our work. Getting started on your fundraising page is easy, and we’ll give you all the tools you’ll need so you can help make the holidays brighter for the people we serve in our communities now and well beyond the holiday season. Create an Online Fundraising Page here.

CHN’s peer-to-peer giving option is an awesome way to support our work! The page gives you your own link as an easy way to spread the word and support the fundraiser. Your team can come to the same place on the website to donate. You are able to see our organization’s goal and how much we need to meet that goal. In these times of remote working, it is a great way to streamline your team’s giving at the holidays to a great cause.

Cash donations are accepted throughout the year and are used to support families and individuals in our housing programs.
