At CATCH, we believe in the people we work with and walk beside them on their journey to a new home. We recognize that you and your children have experienced trauma in your journey, we want to co-create a new story based on your strengths that have served you to this moment.
CATCH offers a vast array of services for our clients:
Housing Placement and Rental Assistance
By having a stable home, we believe families will be better equipped to get back to a stable life with sustainable income, school, health, and routine. We will build a Housing Plan together to find an affordable, safe apartment with the lease in your name. CATCH will sponsor the application fee, security deposit, and rent while we work together. We offer as much rental assistance as is needed to stabilize you, for some families that’s two months, for others it’s six months.
Once the key is turned into your new home, your family will be paired with a case manager to work toward long-term stability and success. We believe in strengthening your family. We will create an Individualized Service Plan that improves the health, income, wellness, and resilience of you and your children. It’s a sincere opportunity to build a sustainable life for you. And we commit to walking by your side.
We offer the financial literacy, budget counseling, and job development skills needed to ensure that your income is sustainable enough to maintain your housing. Working with other local providers, we will improve your earned income potential and stabilize your financial situation.
Established by Mountain West Bank in 2008, the CATCH Match Savings Program inspires families to save. Thanks to the vision and leadership of Mountain West Bank (who received a national Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) Awarda> in New Orleans, LA in 2009 for this initiative), we help you open a savings account at the bank of their choice, and then match each dollar saved up to $500.
