Company History

For many years, Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County had known that affordable housing was one of the most significant needs of many people receiving services. As a result, Catholic Charities established the Division of Housing Development and Services in 1990 and formed Charities Housing Development Corporation of Santa Clara County (Charities Housing) in 1993 to address the need. Our projects are located throughout Santa Clara County and the range of housing types includes service-enriched housing for extremely low-income individuals as well as traditional affordable multi-family housing. Today, Charities Housing actively oversees the management and operation of over 1,200 units and contracts for appropriate resident services from Catholic Charities.
