Catholic Housing Services believes everyone deserves the right to a safe, affordable place to call home. Inspired by this vision, CHS develops, owns and manages affordable housing programs for low-income families and individuals; currently including 2,400 units of housing in 57 different buildings across Western Washington. We provide supportive services for people who have experienced homelessness, low income seniors, farm worker families, and those who have special physical and mental needs.
Following best practices in serving individuals with chronic histories of homelessness, CHS has developed several Permanent Supportive Housing Communities that follow a Housing First, Harm Reduction based model of services. As CHS has continued to grow and expand, we have identified a need for leadership and vision for this expanding group of properties in King County.
