  • Mission:
  • Catholic Housing Services (CHS) is committed to breaking the cycle of homelessness and poverty by providing safe affordable housing coupled with supportive services onsite. Our housing programs instill hope, an opportunity to consider other possibilities for a person’s life. We walk with our residents, inviting them to direct their energy and gifts toward overcoming the issues that have contributed to their life challenges. We accompany, guide and empower them as they move from crisis to stability, while experiencing personal growth and the ability to envision a hope-filled future. Our philosophy is simple: each person has value, and is given a chance to contribute to the community. New residents are welcomed by their neighbors, and are invited to take part in the many community activities. As the residents begin to know and support each other as peers, they mutually rediscover their own self-worth, building confidence and social capital.
