Community Impact

Spectrum Housing Assist

Spectrum Housing Assist – Charter’s inaugural philanthropic program that debuted in December 2014 as Charter Our Community – focused on assisting homeowners with critical home repairs and improving safety through community rebuilding events, distribution of Safe & Healthy Home Kits and installation of smoke detectors. The initial goal to improve 25,000 homes by 2020 later doubled to 50,000 and the Company reached its goal in October 2020 with a final event in Stamford, Conn. In 2021, Charter expanded its philanthropic outreach, launching Spectrum Community Center Assist, a new five-year initiative to revitalize community centers and invest in their job training programs across its 41-state footprint.
