About CBI

Community Basics, Inc. (CBI) is a nonprofit Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO) whose mission is to create and manage high-quality, affordable housing in Central PA and the surrounding areas. Our vision is for all people to live in a place they are proud to call home.

Since 1997, CBI has partnered with federal, state and local organizations as well as general contractors, architects and supportive service providers to build and manage affordable housing communities that meet the needs of our residents.

Many of our residents are working families, while others are disabled. Additionally, CBI provides permanent housing for individuals who have experienced homelessness.
