About Caritas House

Established in 1994, Caritas House Inc. is a supportive service agency for people living in North-Central West Virginia who are affected by HIV/AIDS. Caritas, which is Latin for charity, believes that all people have the right to live with dignity.  As a community based organization, we are called upon to help people affected by HIV/AIDS and other disparities.  


In 1995, Caritas House became a provider of Housing Opportunity for People with AIDS (HOPWA) assistance, distributing more than $3 million dollars in housing and utility support over a 10 year period. In 1996, Caritas House also acquired an emergency shelter for people living with HIV/AIDS who are homeless or in transition.


In 2007, Caritas House launched a permanent supportive housing project called Colligo House to provide housing and supportive services for individuals who are chronically homeless with disabilities. This facility met the needs of more than 28 individuals, empowering them to be functional members of society again by ensuring their basic needs are met.

In 2017, Colligo House was restructured.  CHIRP (Colligo House Independent Recovery Program) is a structured group transitional living facility for individuals recovering from alcohol and/or drug abuse. Professional and peer support is available.


Caritas House is well aware of the issues and constraints facing individuals with special needs and we wish to drive the initiative to increase their quality of life.
