Project Description

Located in downtown Santa Rosa, the Caritas Village Project is proposed as a national model to provide permanent solutions to reduce homelessness and is comprised of two developments: Caritas Center and Caritas Homes. In total, the development involves the construction of just over a full city-block. The Caritas Center consists of a comprehensive family and homeless support services facility to be operated by Catholic Charities. Caritas Homes is an affordable housing development to be operated by Burbank Housing.

Coastland | DCCM is currently providing plan review and inspection of the Caritas Center, which will be a transformative campus of services and housing solutions for currently- and formerly- homeless residents. The Center will include an approximately 46,587 square-foot three-story building. The project will also expand emergency family housing by adding 50 family units on the project site as part of the Caritas Center. The structural system is a proprietary steel Buckling Restrained Braced Frame. At completion of the project, the total population of Caritas Center will be 260 residents.

The Center Building is being permitted in phases (Fast Track) so that construction may begin prior to full permit approval, saving our client both time and money. Permits include grading, deep foundations system, foundation, structural steel and full building permits. Caritas Homes Phases I and II are in plan review concurrently and construction began in 2021.
