Project Information

Project Information

Gonzaga Family Haven opened its doors to families experiencing homelessness in the Fall of 2021. This revolutionary housing property has been made possible through a collaboration with our community partners at Gonzaga University and Gonzaga Preparatory School. As the building progresses, this affordable housing property will become the forever home for a total of 73 families by 2022.


The Gonzaga Family Haven affordable housing community is embedded with wraparound support services so that families can stabilize their lives through on-site case management, community events, and skill-building opportunities. Our partners at Gonzaga University Gonzaga Prep, and St. Aloysius Parish, plan to work with our community through student volunteering that will help enrich the lives of this future community in unique ways.

The location of Gonzaga Family Haven has been chosen to complement the investments made by GU and its goal to build assets into the Logan neighborhood. The Haven is a new neighbor to Gonzaga University and Gonzaga Preparatory School and its amenities are designed to support resident families and exalt this underserved community.

The property is located near local schools, parks, emergency services, public transportation, grocery stores, healthcare, and childcare. Residents of Gonzaga Haven will be well positioned for the support they need for success.

The result of the combined effort will be primarily seen in a community of healthy, happy, children with a brighter future.
