Cathedral Square (CS) is a non-profit organization created in 1977. We develop and operate communities for seniors and individuals with special needs. For over 39 years, Cathedral Square has lived up to its mission of “healthy homes, caring communities and positive aging”. Today, CS owns and/or manages 30 housing communities, each uniquely designed to provide safe and secure apartments at an affordable price.
Cathedral Square operates three programs:
We assist community groups around Vermont to develop, refinance, preserve and enhance affordable housing developments. Cathedral Square developments excel in quality design, accessibility, green building, and amenities.
CS manages 30 communities in Chittenden, Franklin, and Addison counties housing more than 1,129 Vermonters in independent, shared, and assisted living housing. There are over 650 people on the waiting list wanting to move in. Properties are well maintained with high REAC scores and positive resident survey results.
Resident Services – SASH
As an advocate for a system that better serves the long term care needs of Vermonters, Cathedral Square administers the SASH (Support And Services at Home) model statewide as part of Vermont’s Blueprint for Health. SASH provides over 4,800 Vermont residents and surrounding community members the support they need to stay at home independently. SASH is a care partnership which connects the health and long term care systems to nonprofit affordable housing providers statewide. SASH focuses on wellness, prevention, and care management. SASH is now in its fourth year of operation, and SASH has proven cost savings, increased access to care, and improved quality of life. SASH will be the platform for other health care innovations, like e-visits, and will be replicated in other States.
