Alvah H. Chapman, Jr. was the Founding Chairman of Community Partnership for Homeless, now called Chapman Partnership in order to provide comprehensive ways to help the homeless. Since then, Chapman Partnership, as the organization is now known, has been providing homeless outreach and homeless services, becoming one of the most enduring charities for homeless in Miami Florida. A third generation newspaper executive, he retired as Chairman of Knight-Ridder in 1989 after almost 30 years with the company and continued as a Knight-Ridder Director through April 2000, while continuing his work helping the homeless. His many civic involvements included service as Chairman of We Will Rebuild following Hurricane Andrew, Founding Chairman of Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America, and 31 years as a Director of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Helping the homeless was a natural extension of his community involvement. A native of Columbus, Georgia, he graduated from The Citadel, Military College of South Carolina, in 1942. After graduation, he served as a B-17 bomber pilot and squadron commander in World War II completing 37 combat missions with the 8th Air Force.
