About Us

Founded in 1981, the City Heights Community Development Corporation (CHCDC) is one of the longest-running nonprofit organizations in San Diego. For over 30 years we have been committed to providing quality comprehensive services to meet the needs of the City Heights community, including affordable housing, economic development, neighborhood improvements and community building opportunities.

Together with our partner #TURN (Utility Reform Network)
CHCDC celebrates: The introduction of SB598 (Hueso)
–Shutoffs Reduction Act Check out our Lobby Day Advocates!

2015 saw 817,000 utility disconnections in Ca. for families that had fallen behind on their bills. Service was never restored for 100K of these families, causing worsening medical conditions, threats to safety, displacement, homelessness, & unfathomable stress among families with infants/children, seniors & those with serious ailments.

Please join us today by sharing your opinion! 619-847-1300 Rulloa@cityheightscdc.org

SB 598 Makes Reducing Utility Disconnections a Top Priority!
• Prohibits shutoffs for residents w/life-threatening ailments, under hospice care or dependent on life support equipment or persons needing power to mitigate a life threatening illness
• Requires CPUC adopt rules reducing shutoffs by 50% by 2021
• Measures impact of rate increase proposals on disconnections.
• Adopt shutoffs to measure service reliability, public safety and bill affordability.
• Provide annual updates to legislature on utility disconnections and impacts. #SB598 #SenatorHueso #LorenaGonsalez #Gofletch #Cityheightsleaders #Utilityreformlobbyday #TURN
