Claretian Associates' Programs & Services
Through our violence prevention programs we make sure that

to school, and provide opportunities for at-risk youth.
Claretian Associates’ housing counseling program aims to provide
renters with the resources and tools they need to stay housed
and prepare them to become homeowners in the future. We offer
