Make a lasting difference – join CHA today!
CALIFORNIA HOMEMAKERS ASSOCIATION (CHA) is a grassroots organizing drive committed to ending the poverty conditions facing our membership of domestic workers, in-home care workers, low-income elderly, blind and disabled recipients of in-home care and other low-paid service, temporary, or seasonal workers in Sonoma County.
CHA members joined together in 2000 with concerned residents, students, professionals, clergy and local businesses to create a free and voluntary, unincorporated private membership association, best suited to achieve a permanent solution to the problems of poverty experienced by these workers.
To lessen the burden of day-to-day survival that has traditionally kept low-income workers from organizing to change the policies and practices at the root of their poverty, CHA members established a free-of-charge, 11-Point Benefit Program that includes emergency food, clothing, non-emergency dental care, preventive medical care, legal advice, information and referral assistance, a monthly membership newspaper and more. The Association is 100% volunteer run; it accepts no government funding or any other money with strings attached – rather it exists through the dedication and generosity of its members as well as those allies in the community who have joined our cause. CHA serves no other aim or aspiration outside its stated goal.
