As of March 2017 Chapter 1 became a subsidiary of Salvation Army Housing Association (SAHA). Chapter 1 will be joining with SAHA to create an enlarged organisation that will enable the combined organisation to continue to pursue its mission and purpose.

The coming together of Salvation Army Housing Association (SAHA) and Chapter 1 represents a significant step forward for both organisations. Together we will be able to do more to help the most vulnerable in society, expanding the range of services, drawing on the expertise found within both organisations and combining the asset base to enable further investment in services. Individually, for SAHA it represents the opportunity to expand its range and spread of services, increase its asset base and diversify its commercial portfolio. For Chapter 1 it represents an opportunity to accelerate and deepen its existing transformation programme to secure the best possible outcomes for its residents and service users and deliver further value for money.
