Catholic Housing Services

Creating safety and stability for vulnerable people and building community are the heart and soul of Catholic Housing Services’ mission.

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 2,500 affordable housing units at 62 properties throughout Western Washington. With an annual operating budget of approximately $23 million, 236 employees and assets of more than $294 million owned or under management, we serve homeless, low-income and special needs individuals and families.

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

Your Generosity helps us "welcome home" neighbors like Vern!
