Welcome to the Harrow Churches Housing Association
HCHA is a small and growing housing association serving vulnerable people in the London boroughs of Harrow, Hounslow and Hillingdon. We provide affordable housing and support that gives people a better quality of life.
We were set up in 1964 by active members of the local church community concerned about the living conditions of elderly people renting privately in Harrow. The spirit of helping those less fortunate than ourselves, regardless of their race, religion or background, continues to motivate our staff and the board of volunteers who govern us and oversee our standards. We are proud to serve such a diverse corner of north west London.
Over the past 50 years our housing services have grown to include clients who may be: elderly, young, have a physical disability, or be living with a long term illness. All of our residents are vulnerable people who, with a little support can lead independent and fulfilling lives.
