We started as a volunteer group of UVA students who called themselves SCRUB and went out to help clean up after Hurricane Camille in 1969. The volunteers discovered families living in dire housing conditions and kept working, evolving into the Charlottesville Housing Improvement Program in 1974. Albemarle Housing Improvement Program spun off in 1976. In 1995, CHIP closed and AHIP began working in the city.
