NorthMarq’s San Diego office presents Community HousingWorks with 2020 Community Grant


MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA (December 14, 2020) – Community HousingWorks (CHW), a nationally recognized 501(c)3 organization serving throughout California, was nominated by Eric Flyckt, managing director of NorthMarq’s San Diego office, to receive a 2020 grant from NorthMarq’s Community Involvement program. NorthMarq’s donation will aid the organization’s Next Gen Success Programs. Community HousingWorks’ mission is to provide and build affordable apartment communities across California and provide residents with impactful services.

“We are very impressed by the wonderful work CHW is doing in San Diego and other California communities. They are a dynamic and growing organization involved in providing affordable housing, combating homelessness and offering other services to low-income people such as youth tutoring and mentoring, and financial and health education to adults,” said Flyckt.

The situation with COVID-19 created special threats to the vulnerable populations served by CHW, including children in their afterschool programs. The organization is currently working to safeguard the well-being of residents, staff, on-site partners in the face of the pandemic, including deploying staff throughout its communities to carry out its Study Stars education program.

The statewide shift to remote learning has widened the academic achievement gap for children in low-income households. The organization hopes to ensure all children enrolled in the Study Starts program overcome the current challenges and to have them re-enroll for virtual delivery. NorthMarq’s donation will help ensure that all children in CHW homes have access to individual and small group tutoring so they do not get left behind.

“Your gift will provide us with the resources to support our staff to reorient to remote program delivery during this time,” Tammy Walz, CHW’s director of advancement, wrote. “Your generous support allows us to find new ways to carry out our programs to help our residents through this ever-evolving situation.
