Our Caritas Housing team develops affordable homes for those in need of support

Catholic Charities’ dedicated housing entity, Caritas Housing, began working in 1998 to acquire, develop, rehabilitate, and manage permanent affordable housing across the state for those in need of a home. 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.
