Our Mission

Cathedral Square creates and maintains quality, affordable, service-enriched housing for older adults and people with special needs. We assist and collaborate with partners in housing, health care and aging services to build capacity, and we design and deliver cost-effective programs and homes that promote residents’ health and well-being, foster vibrant and compassionate communities, and meet residents’ diverse needs. 

Our Vision

We envision a time when all people, regardless of ability to pay, will live and thrive in safe, quality housing, with access to the support and services they need to remain healthy and living in the place they call home. In pursuit of this vision, Cathedral Square will continue to be recognized as a national leader in the creation of affordable and exceptional service-enriched housing.
