Caritas Housing

At the start of the new millennium, it became clear to us that more affordable housing was a key to serving people who’d been pushed to the margins of society. We now have more than 1,000 units of affordable housing across western Oregon.

We partner with property managers, contractors, project developers, funders, and our communities to create places for individuals and families to thrive, placing special emphasis on trauma-informed, equal opportunity projects.
