Housing Development initiatives to increase affordable choices for the community
Catholic Charities is focusing on providing affordable housing for low-income and special needs families and individuals in the state of New Mexico.
Since 2015, CC Housing is looking at new construction development opportunities to bring concrete affordable options to the community.
Some projects are owned by CC housing, others are co-owned with other entities and some of them are co-managed.
We are on target to achieve our 3 year goal to develop 200 units of affordable housing in New Mexico.
Hibernian House offers subsidized rental units for low income seniors. Located in downtown Albuquerque, Hibernian House has 20 units with enclosed courtyards. The one-bedroom units are 540 square feet and offer easy access to the city bus and nearby medical facilities. Private parking is available, along with a gated entry, community room, laundry facilities and a neighborhood networks center.

Generations at Mesa
Our newest affordable housing development is a finalist for AHF's 2020 Readers' Choice Award!! Vote for us by July 31st here:
Developed by Gorman & Company and Catholic Charities, the 54-unit multigenerational community targets households that are often overlooked. Generations at West Mesa recognizes that grandparents are often the primary caregivers for their grandchildren.
“The grandfamily aspect is a big component of the development,” says Zach Johnson, director of housing finance at Gorman & Co. As a result, Generations at West Mesa brings together design elements and services for both seniors and youths. For example, there’s a playground and after-school activities for children as well as gardening stations and services for seniors.
Catholic Charities is offering a suite of on-site and off-site programs, including grandparenting classes.Another notable aspect is the public-private partnership behind the project, with the city donating the land for the development, says Johnson.
Forty-five apartments are affordable to residents earning no more than 30%, 50%, and 60% of the area median income, and nine units are market-rate to create a mixed-income development, with all of the homes aimed at seniors. Eleven units are covered by Section 8 project-based vouchers.
