Housing Services

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

Caritas Housing

Shelter is a basic human need, deserved by all. To date, Catholic Charities’ dedicated housing entity, Caritas Housing, has created more than 800 units of affordable housing for over 1,900 individuals.

Resident Services

Catholic Charities of Oregon provides on-site, relationship-centered services with the primary goal of helping residents maintain their housing and thrive as members of our community.

Housing Transitions

The Housing Transitions Program is a relationship-centered program that operates on the best practice Housing First model. We assist in removing barriers to permanent housing and provide housing services to self-identified women experiencing homelessness, who are at least 25 years old, and do not have any children in their care.

Kenton Women's Village

Kenton Women’s Village is a creative and collaborative project, offering a new approach for addressing houselessness at a small scale. The villagers are empowered, have a sense of purpose, and take daily steps toward permanent housing.

Supportive Housing
