About CHR

Community Housing Resource Inc. (CHR) was formed in 1996 as a private company whose mission is to provide affordable housing opportunities for year-round residents of Cape Cod.  We develop and manage rental and ownership housing properties in Provincetown, Truro, and Wellfleet.

With the completion of Gull Pond Road in Wellfleet, CHR has created 156 year-round homes, 55 art studio workspaces, and 11 commercial spaces.   CHR is in the process of developing and/or constructing an additional 14 year-round homes.  Upon completion of these developments, CHR will have created 170 homes, of which 75% are affordable.  CHR is the largest provider (public, private, non-profit, or government entity) of affordable housing on the Outer Cape.

CHR is owned and managed by Edward “Ted” Malone, who has been active in the affordable housing field for over thirty years.  Ted’s undergraduate education was in planning with a degree in Urban Studies / Environmental Design from the University of Connecticut.  Over the years he has also pursued graduate study in Housing, Community Development and Architecture.

He has been involved in affordable housing issues on Lower Cape Cod for over 20 years and began housing development consulting here in 1993.  He has also been working as a private developer of affordable rental and ownership housing in Provincetown, where he has lived since 1991, and other lower Cape communities.

Prior to his work on the Cape, through his work for the national non-profit Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation, Ted has provided technical assistance to groups representing every interest in the affordable housing development process.  He has served as full time executive staff, interim staff, and consultant to start-up and established non-profit organizations.  He also served as a facilitator / trainer for community based groups pursuing affordable housing solutions.  He is a well versed in housing policy and is skilled as a researcher and policy analyst.  During his years with Neighborhood Reinvestment, Ted was instrumental in the design and implementation of the organizational development process and housing development process for Mutual Housing Associations of the national NeighborWorks Network.

In addition to Ted, CHR presently employs four full-time professionals: Rachel Butler, Property Manager;  Scott Baird, Maintenance Associate; Wendy Carter, Bookkeeper; and Jim Pipilas, Marketing Director.  Underlying the technical expertise of the CHR staff is a foundation of affordable housing advocacy and community service.
