Culpeper Community Development Corporation (CCDC) was formed in 1988 by a group of local residents who were concerned about the growing homeless population. With this in mind they formed a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.
Recently CCDC started doing business as Culpeper Housing and Shelter Services (CHASS). The name change was to identify more with what the organization does on a daily basis (providing shelter and helping those in need obtain stable, permanent housing).
"The mission of CHASS is to assure homeless and low income Culpeper residents have access to safe affordable housing."
