The Village Spirit Center for Community Change and Healing is a housing, services, and community economic development initiative focused on the Black community in Western Washington. Catholic Community Services and Catholic Housing Services have implemented initiatives that focus on what we call “Communities of Concern.” They are the poor and low-wage earners in the Black, urban Native American and Latino/Chicano communities. These segments of our society have suffered greatly from years of marginalization and being excluded in large part from the economic opportunities of this nation and; thereby, unable to break the debilitating cycle of poverty that ensnares them.

In these initiatives, we will focus on creating community economic opportunities through the development of affordable housing, transformative services and the authentic promotion of asset acquisition.
