Mission: Catch's mission is to strengthen our communities by creating opportunities for permanently affordable, quality housing for people otherwise not being served.
Programs: Housing production: in order to meet the high demand for affordable workforce housing, catch constructs new, affordable, energy-efficient housing units. New construction is an effective way to address the critical shortage of housing while also addressing the specific needs of the community.
hbfsc: the home buyer & financial success center at catch was established to assist individuals and families preparing for home ownership and guide them in the process of wealth building. The hbfsc offers one-on-one housing counseling, home buyer education classes, financial fitness training, foreclosure prevention counseling, reverse mortgage counseling and other post purchase support.
affordable rental apartments: catch currently owns and maintains 237 affordable rental apartments that are home to over 600 individuals, including over 230 children.
CATCH Community Housing works to provide quality affordable housing for those in the Concord, NH area who seek a safe place to live on a limited budget, usually as employed family raisers or retired people. CATCH also provides financial counseling and guidance for those seeking to buy their home and stabilize their finances. CATCH currently has 239 affordable rental apartments and houses 559 adults and children. More are in the planning, development and/or construction process.
My experience with CATCH has been as a volunteer Board and Committee leader and member in a variety of working, managing, and administrative functions, including financial, developmental and personnel oversight.
For a period of over fifteen years of involvement, I have been pleasantly and positively impressed with the quality of CATCH's efforts and the success of its results in meeting a significant part of the housing need locally. While much remains to be done, and the continued support and involvement of every local citizen is urgently needed, it is clear that CATCH is on the right path to making a safe, quality home available to all.
