Catherine of Siena Village was developed by Catholic Housing Services of Western Washington in collaboration with Peninsula Housing Authority and West End Outreach Services, a Division of Forks Community Hospital. It is located along Bogachiel Way across from Forks Community Hospital,
Construction was completed on the project early this spring. The property provides 30 affordable housing units. Families and individuals are now living in the units.
