Welcome to Arcata House Partnership

Arcata House is a community-based nonprofit organization created in 1991 as a partnership between local churches, the City of Arcata and residents of the area who believed that ending homelessness was the responsibility of everyone in the community.

We operate two programs:

Transitional Housing

Arcata House operates three transitional houses where families and individuals live while they save money and overcome the challenges that led to their being homeless. Learn More→

Apartments First

Mission Statement
