Mercy Housing Northwest

Mercy Housing has been active in the Northwest since 1981 and has developed and now manages almost 2,400 affordable rental homes throughout the region serving over 5,500 residents in the Northwest each day. We've helped over 100 families build and purchase their own homes.

Mercy Housing is creating stable, vibrant and healthy communities for Washington State residents. We build homes, transform lives and help families, individuals and seniors become self sufficient by providing permanent housing with supportive services for our families.

In 1991, five women’s religious communities based in Washington State gathered to envision how to address the current needs of low-income individuals and families. With this in mind, the sisters set a goal to provide well managed, affordable housing by coming together: the Tacoma Dominicans; the Adrian (Edmonds) Dominicans; the Sisters of Providence; the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace; and the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary joined forces to ultimately establish Mercy Housing.

Since then, Mercy Housing owns and operates 59 properties throughout 22 counties in Washington and Idaho, providing 5,500 economically poor children and families a place to call home.
