...housing families who are at risk of becoming homeless


VILLANOVA APARTMENTS Service-Enriched Housing  In 2006, Catholic Charities assumed the sponsorship of this development, and ground was broken in May 2007 for the total renovation of these apartments.  Features include 64 two and three bedroom units.   As a non-profit organization, Catholic Charities was able to maintain the availability of the project-based housing assistance for the City of Lawton.

Today, Villanova Apartments is a partner with the City of Lawton and stands ready to serve families who require housing support.  Catholic Charities is proud to sponsor this development and to renew its commitment to provide supportive safe and affordable housing to deserving families in Lawton.

VILLA ISENBART Senior Housing  Villa Isenbart is an affordable housing development for people who are 62 years and older. Villa Isenbart is sponsored by Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City.

In 1993, Catholic Charities submitted a HUD 202 application to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development for funds to construct Villa Isenbart. The application was approved. A separate Corporation was formed that is responsible for the oversight of the project and accountable to the Board of Catholic Charities. The bombing of the Murrah Building in 1995 delayed the final application and approval.  Construction began in 1996. Villa Isenbart welcomed its first residents in April of 1997. Features include 40 unfurnished one-bedroom apartments, a large community room, common areas, a coin operated laundry, and ample parking.

Residents of Villa Isenbart must be 62 years of age and meet specific income requirements for residency as required by HUD.

Many activities and programs are offered through the collaborative efforts of the management staff, community organizations and services. On site activities include visits by nursing students from Rose State University, holiday and birthday celebrations, cookouts, and resident council meetings.

TRINITY GARDEN APARTMENTS Senior Housing  Trinity Gardens is an affordable residential community serving senior adults. It is sponsored by Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City. These apartments provide safe and affordable housing for seniors who can live independently in a retirement community setting and serves persons of all faiths.

With the assistance of Mercy Housing, Inc. of Denver, Catholic Charities secured affordable housing tax credits to finance the costs of rehabilitating the former St. Ann’s Nursing Home into a senior apartment residence to serve low-income people. Catholic Charities has made a long-term commitment for the use of this property to provide affordable housing for seniors at this site. Supportive services are available through Catholic Charities and are available to the residents who choose to contact a case manager to insure they can maintain independence and to enhance the quality of their lives. Catholic Charities has ultimate fiduciary responsibility for the operation of this facility and this is accomplished through its appointment of a voluntary board of directors that oversees the facility.

Trinity Gardens opened in April 1997 with 54 unfurnished one-bedroom apartments and 4 unfurnished two-bedroom apartments. The original chapel serves as the community room. It is used for resident activities and group functions. The building also has a large common area upstairs that is furnished, a coin-operated laundry, and ample parking. The Margaret Ann Bays Trust provided funding for a community garden that is located on this site.

Trinity Gardens is designed for persons who are 62 years of age and older and of specific incomes. The program is administered in accordance with the Federal Fair Housing Law Amendments Act of 1988.
