Serving People of All Beliefs


Catholic Housing Services seeks to build better lives, stronger families, and healthier communities across western Washington. Established in 1979, CHS develops, owns, or manages more than 2,200 affordable housing units at 54 properties.

The benefits of a place to call home are many, including long-term housing stability, stronger relationships, and the opportunity for residents to become more fully engaged with the community around them.

We partner with Catholic Community Services to provide supportive services for people who have experienced homelessness, low-income seniors, farmworker families, and those who have special physical and mental needs.

As a major provider and developer of affordable housing in western Washington, we have a unique role in:

  • Creating affordable housing that meets specific needs in each community
  • Supporting marginalized communities
  • Maintaining healthy, beautiful, and dignified homes in communities of choice
  • Advocating for policies that ensure access to housing for our most vulnerable community members
  • Working with partners to ensure residents have the support they need to thrive
