Providence Housing’s mission is to strengthen families and communities by creating and providing access to quality affordable housing enriched by the availability of supportive services. Providence Housing helps individuals and families within the 12-county region of the Diocese of Rochester
Providence Housing founders envisioned a housing development corporation that would work closely with the faith community and Catholic Charities agencies, supporting those entities where a need for housing was perceived. Since 1994, Providence has secured greater than $135 million in project development funding from public and private sources and has created more than 900 units of affordable housing. This housing has been developed in collaboration with Catholic Charities agencies and other Catholic institutions throughout the Diocese of Rochester.
Providence Housing, a not-for-profit organization affiliated with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rochester, develops, finances and manages housing for individuals and families in the 12 counties of the Diocese. For more information, visit www.ProvidenceHousing.org.
