CHASF 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.

Crawford, of removing financial barriers that might prevent students from gaining an education and eventually employment. With the reduction of federal financial assistance and growing tuition rates the need to continue to provide scholarships to our students is more critical than ever. All students should be afforded the opportunity to pursue the American Dream and it is imperative that we remain committed to this goal.
