Caritas

At Caritas, we believe that every person deserves a safe, clean place to call home.


  • Caritas is the largest non-profit owner and manager of permanent veteran and Single Room Occupancy housing in Greater Boston.
  • Caritas provides low- and extremely low-income residents safe, clean, and stable housing in its 895 rooms in 29 buildings in Greater Boston.
  • Rents range from $120 to $145 per week and include all utilities.
  • All homes are no more than a 10-minute walk to public transportation.

Caritas prides itself on providing safe, well-maintained, stable housing. Each house is supervised by a live-in Resident Manager responsible for the well-being of the residents and the upkeep of the property. Caritas partners with several direct care agencies including Vinfen, Heading Home, AIDS Action Committee, Pine Street Inn, the Veterans Northeast Outreach Center, and the New England Center for Homeless Veterans. The Caritas model creates sustainable properties that lessen the need for homeless shelters. By running our properties on a not-for-profit basis, renting at below market rents, and partnering with service agencies, we make it possible for our residents to have a permanent home — and to maintain dignity and stability in their lives.
