Cathedral Square Corporation is a leader in the development of affordable, service-enriched housing communities for seniors and individuals with special needs. A nonprofit organization founded in 1977 in Burlington, Vermont, CSC is dedicated to advancing “healthy homes, caring communities and positive aging” throughout Vermont and beyond our borders.
CSC owns and/or manages 30 senior housing communities, each uniquely designed to provide safe and secure apartments at an affordable price. In 2011, CSC created the nationally recognized SASH (Support and Services at Home) program, which it administers statewide as part of the Vermont Blueprint for Health.
Cathedral Square operates three programs:
We help community groups throughout Vermont develop, preserve, refinance and enhance affordable housing communities. Cathedral Square developments excel in quality design and meet or exceed standards for accessibility, “green” building practices, and amenities.
CSC manages 30 housing communities in Chittenden, Franklin and Addison counties housing more than 1,129 Vermonters in independent, shared and assisted-living apartments. Our properties are well-maintained, professionally staffed and receive high REAC scores and positive results from annual resident surveys. We consistently have more than 650 people on waiting lists for our properties.
SASH & Resident Services
As a leading advocate for a system that better serves the long-term care needs of Vermonters, Cathedral Square created and administers the Support and Services at Home (SASH) program statewide. Working in partnership with regional housing organizations, agencies on aging and providers of home health, mental health and primary care services, SASH supports more than 4,800 Vermont residents and surrounding community members so they can stay at home and live independently. Established in 2011 and part of the Vermont Blueprint for Health, SASH focuses on wellness, prevention and care management. It has been documented to reduce Medicare costs, provide better access to care and improve seniors’ quality life. SASH will be a platform for other health-care innovations such as e-visits, and is being replicated in other states.
