About CFH

In 1979, Fr. Gerard Creedon and a group of Catholic laity created CFH in response to the U. S. Catholic Bishops’ 1975 Pastoral Letter, “The Right to a Decent Home.” CFH is a non-profit organization providing housing opportunities to eligible applicants regardless of race, ethnicity, creed, gender, familial status or religious affiliation.  The CFH service area is the geographic footprint of the Arlington Catholic Diocese, although CFH is an autonomous organization.

The CFH continuum of housing services includes:

      • Security deposit assistance
      • Rental assistance
      • Rental homes
      • First-time homebuyer opportunities

CFH empowers individuals and families to successfully create a sustainable home in which they can achieve their goals and allow their children to build their dreams and reach their potential.
