CHICAGO – About 150 public housing and Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) students attending some 75 different schools will participate in CHA’s “Take Flight College Send-Off” at 11:30 a.m., Wednesday, Aug. 3, 2016, at CHA Offices, 60 E. Van Buren.

The trunk party bids farewell to CHA students attending, among others, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Colgate, Ohio, Grambling and Arizona State. This year’s class is the second-largest since CHA began with the event six years ago. And it is possible thanks to a generous grant from CNA to our non-profit affiliateSpringboard to Success.

“As I have designated 2016 the ‘Year of the Youth’ at CHA, this is an especially important class of students heading off to college for the first time,” CHA CEO Eugene Jones, Jr. said. “Our youth are our future, and CHA remains committed to contributing to programs that support their endeavors. We have 150 youth participating in this, one of our signature programs, and we are overcome with pride as we salute them one more time before they head out into the real world.”
