Catholic Charities' housing department provides seniors who meet income guidelines with the opportunity for safe and affordable housing and access to a supportive network of services. The program currently operates 16 housing facilities in Nassau and Suffolk counties, totaling more than 1,329 units.
In addition to providing safe, affordable apartments, Catholic Charities' housing department works to ensure the physical, social, and spiritual well-being of residents. Dedicated staff arrange social and educational events at the sites, identifying seniors needs, and help them access services for which they are eligible.
