CHA Scholarship Fund staff, board, and advisory share a common vision for the future and that is to open the doors of opportunity to low-income youth in our community.

All firmly believe CHASF serves as a vehicle of hope for young people with the desire to achieve, but who lack adequate financial means.

A Letter from the Executive Director

As the newly appointed Executive Director of the Charlotte Housing Authority Scholarship Fund, it is an absolute honor to be associated with an organization that for 32 years has done so much to promote education and improve the economic opportunity in Charlotte.

I am humbled to serve CHASF and continue the work of our great and humble founder, John T. Crawford, of removing financial barriers that might prevent students from gaining an education and eventually employment.
