Healthy Housing

Catholic Charities of Oregon develops innovative solutions for some of our region’s most pressing housing challenges.

Housing is a human right

We provide material supports wrapped in our suite of services to help those at risk of or experiencing houselessness

In partnership with property management companies, our donors, partners, and Catholic Charities programs, our Housing Services team (including Caritas Housing, Resident Services, Supportive Housing, and our Healthy Housing Initiative) works to build and maintain affordable housing for those experiencing or at risk of houselessness across the state of Oregon. In addition to those material supports, Catholic Charities provides a wide range of services to help clients keep their housing as they walk the path to self-sufficiency and stability.
