Charles' place holds 38 units and the diocese hopes it will address the need for senior housing in the community our dream is to have ten times that but it is an evolution one of the great needs that we have today is affordable housing especially for so many of our senior citizens.

Many of our seniors maybe don't have the resources to have safe, clean affordable housing in a secure environment.

The bishop of the diocese calls the project a fruitful endeavor, drawing from the location's history it used to be an apple orchard and it's also on pear st., so there's a fruit theme to this whole thing, and it's going to bear fruit in the future with so many of our seniors residing here living their lives.

Catholic charities says they're proud to offer something both affordable and accommodating for people to call home.
