Mission

To provide services that strengthen affordable housing communities.

CMS serves as the Performance-Based Contract Administrator (PBCA) for the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for Project Based Section 8 properties in the states of Washington, Nebraska, and Utah. CMS maintains a service-oriented approach designed to assist property owners and agents in understanding and complying with the many complex federal housing regulations pertaining to their properties. To accomplish our core mission to assist in the provision of quality affordable housing to low-income families, CMS provides training to HUD, housing authorities, and owners and management agents nationwide.

All proceeds from our work and training programs directly fund affordable housing in Bremerton, WA. Bremerton is a mid-size community facing unique housing challenges. Located in Western Washington, 14 miles and an hour ferry ride across the water from Seattle, the city also lies between two Navy shipyards. With the drastic change in population each time an aircraft carrier sails in and out of port and the constant expansion of Seattle, housing affordability is continually at risk.

Core Values

CMS is dedicated to delivering services with compassion for our community and clientele.

CMS is continually looking for new solutions to the challenges we face. We seek to convert knowledge and ideas into tangible benefits for our clients and staff.

CMS strives for excellence in every detail of our work. We aim to meet the goals that we set for ourselves and by those who interact with us.
