Resident services coordinators provide on-site, relationship-centered services with the primary goal of helping residents keep their housing. Residents in Catholic Charities housing have often experienced poverty, family violence, homelessness, mental illness, and/or physical disabilities prior to being housed. Coordinators organize programming suitable to the residents of each site, and different types of services are offered depending on whether the site serves families, refugees, farm workers, seniors, and/or people with disabilities.
The resident services coordinator at Kateri Park, Esperanza Court, Howard House, and Haven House works with the residents of all four properties, mostly on the Catholic Charities campus. Services are primarily for families and include academic enrichment programs for preschool and school age children, English language instruction, family mentors, citizenship, health promotion, school liaison, and family advocacy, among other services.
Caritas Villa, Caritas Plaza, and Sacred Heart Villa serve older adults and people with disabilities. Programming is offered to educate residents on self care and managing chronic illness, but is also designed to invite seniors to continue participating in outside activities, volunteer as they are able, and manage their fixed incomes.
McCoy Village — named in honor of NE Portland icon and community leader, Gladys McCoy — provide affordable housing for low-income families and seniors. Health services offered through community partners are designed to help seniors remain in their communities for as long as they can. Additionally, resident services coordinators partner with family members and other community partners to provide neighborhood-based services.
