Caritas Village, an ambitious vision from Santa Rosa Nonprofit Leaders Catholic Charities and Burbank Housing, will consist of two unique yet complementary facilities, Caritas Center and Caritas Homes. Through Catholic Charities’ evidence-based housing-focused service model, Caritas Center’s 46,000 square feet will include a family shelter, childcare center, drop-in center, and recuperation shelter, as well as a new health clinic partnership with Santa Rosa Community Health. All of these elements together will double the number of people Catholic Charities can transition from homelessness into permanent housing each year. Caritas Homes aims to create 128 apartments of affordable permanent housing, built and managed by Burbank Housing. It will be home to people who represent a cross-section of the community including working singles, vulnerable seniors, veterans, and families whose income can’t keep up with the current rental market.
