Catholic Charites is moving forward with a new permanent, affordable, supportive housing project on the Holy Names Campus site on Spokane's Northwest side. The project will be called Mother Theresa Haven and is planned to be a 48 unit housing project adjacent to Catholic Charites Sister's Haven, a 72 unit family affordable housing community.

The monthly rent for families will average $245 and residents will have access to on-site services including counseling, case management, healthcare, recreational activities and more. The project is funded by an allocation of 9% tax credits and through a loan from Catholic Housing Services Eastern Washington. The project is planned to open sometime in 2022.

At the same time Catholic Charities announced the Mother Theresa Haven project, they also announced a project in the Tri-Cities called Pasco Haven. That development will create 60 units for vulnerable adults in that area.

Additionally, construction is already underway for Gonzaga Family Haven, a 72 unit affordable housing in Spokane off of N. Nevada near Gonzaga Prep. . Catholic Charites says families will be able to move into the units at Gonzaga Family Haven before the start of the 2021 school year. 

With the addition of these new developments, this means Catholics Charites will have developed 13 new affordable housing projects since 2012. All of these building projects are fully funded through the IRS, tax credits and the State of Washington. The point out they do raise any private money or solicit donations for these properties.
