About Catholic Charities Eastern Washington
Since 1912, Catholic Charities has affirmed the dignity of every person, partnering with parishes and the greater community to serve and advocate for those who are vulnerable, bringing stability and hope to people throughout Eastern Washington. Since that foundational time, a focus on making our community better, especially in the form of affordable, safe and secure housing options, has been ever-present.
Rooted in this mission, our legacy of service to our most vulnerable neighbors, regardless of religious affiliation, continually builds a foundation of stability, health and hope.
Catholic Charities is prepared and ready to go anywhere that someone needs a home. Currently, Catholic Charities operates more than 1,500 housing units in Spokane, Walla Walla, Pullman, Othello, Pasco, Chewelah, Clarkston and Othello. Once residents move in, CHSEW also provides the things that make a house a home: furniture, food, and other home necessities as well as needed support and connections to help them realize a better future for themselves.
We envision a community where children born into poverty can thrive as adults, where all people live with the dignity of a roof over their heads and where the voiceless can speak and be heard.
We collaborate with partners in business, government, church and nonprofit fields to solve community problems. We pioneer innovative programs to inspire action and hope among our clients. At all times, we commit steadfastly to the dignity of every person at all stages of life.
