Housing Transitions Program

Catholic Charities Housing Transitions Program builds on our long history of serving homeless individuals. This program's unique outreach and support to homeless women extends the work that Catholic Charities has provided to the homeless since the late 1990s.

Services Provided:
  • Outreach, support, advocacy and case management services to homeless women, with a special emphasis on helping chronically homeless individuals access and stay in affordable housing
  • On-going support to individuals and families living in Catholic Charities' housing projects

The Housing Transitions Program works closely with many of the organizations in the Portland area that assist the homeless community.

The purpose of the Housing Transitions Program is to provide permanent housing to homeless women and offer the support services they need to remain in housing.

Would you like to volunteer?

Volunteers are at the heart and soul of what makes Housing Transitions a welcoming place.  Women who come in for day services appreciate the sense of community, the respectful atmosphere, and a “women only” place just for them.

There are opportunities for one-time volunteers (assisting with moves, participating in events), or “regulars” who become a part of our family.  We welcome groups of volunteers from churches, schools or community groups if given one month notice.

Most volunteer opportunities include an orientation and training and possibly a criminal background check, and a reference check.  Typical volunteer opportunities include:

  • Community Friend
  • Driver
  • House Assistant
  • Computer Assistant
  • Move-In Assistant
