CHSN was founded in 1985 by a small group of caring community members who wanted to find ways to help improve the lives of the most vulnerable members of our community. From this small group with big hearts and a powerful idea, what we now know as CHSN has grown.
The affairs of CHSN are governed by a written Constitution, are directed by an elected Board of Directors and managed by staff employees.
