Senior Housing

Aging in place can be a daunting task for people who don’t have a safety net of family or other supports. Our Senior Housing projects provides rental subsidies from HUD, onsite social services and partnerships with other providers to ensure residents have what they need to live in dignity and age in place in their homes.

 Housing Initiatives

Catholic Community Services and Catholic Housing Services have implemented initiatives that focus on what we call “Communities of Concern.” They are the poor and low-wage earners in the Black, urban Native American and Latino/Chicano communities. These segments of our society have suffered greatly from years of marginalization and being excluded in large part from the economic opportunities of this nation and; thereby, unable to break the debilitating cycle of poverty that ensnares them.
