Senior Communities

Catholic Charities Senior Communities develops and operates affordable, supportive communities for older adults with a resolve to nurture a spirit of purpose, wellness, and harmony among both our residents and colleagues.

Catholic Charities has been managing senior communities for over 35 years. Catholic Charities owns and operates senior communities in Baltimore City, Baltimore, Anne Arundel, Garrett and Harford Counties. We offer 24 locations (view map or view the list below) including nearly 1,800 units of efficiency, one-bedroom and two- bedroom apartments.

We believe that all people, regardless of their religion, beliefs, race or financial means, are entitled to a home. We are dedicated to promoting community, good health, happiness and a sense of self-worth for all residents.
