Father Bach Haven

Second Father Bach building planned downtown


Catholic Charities Spokane has announced plans to build a second apartment building, similar to the 2012-constructed Father Bach Haven Home located downtown. Called Father Bach II, it will be built on a vacant lot at 201 W. Second Ave.

The 35,300-square-foot transitional housing project is currently in the planning stages with the city of Spokane. The proposed building is designed to have four stories and 51 units.

In January 2013, Catholic Charities opened Father Bach Haven at 108 S. State St. to provide housing aimed at getting chronically homeless individuals off the street and into a place of their own, according to the Spokesman-Review.
