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.

Looking for Housing?

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.

Caritas Housing partners with property managers for all leasing and community management issues. Available units are updated regularly, but many properties utilize a waiting list. We encourage anyone interested in a property to contact the leasing agent directly for more information.

If you have a property that you’d like to sell or donate to be used as affordable housing, please email our Development Team.
