Feb 10A Message From Our President
With this being my final year as Mercy Housing’s President & CEO, I wanted to thank all of our supporters, volunteers, donors, staff, and most importantly residents for everything. My career has been an incredible journey. I have so many fond memories, from seeing families turn the key to a new home, to witnessing the impact that our Resident Services have made for thousands of people that call Mercy Housing home.
Our founders gave us Mercy Housing’s core values — respect, justice, and mercy — and I’m confident that the foundation they created will make the transition to a new CEO a huge success.
Some of my fondest memories here were working with Sister Lillian, the former CEO before me. She passed away last year, but her legacy lives on at Mercy Housing today. I was with her during her last visit to our home office in Denver. She had always been a mentor and a source of strength for me. I feel inspired when I think about where Mercy Housing is today and how pleased she was to witness how we’ve grown. As I retire, I am optimistic because I know that our leadership may change but the mission will always stay true to our vision and core values, and with a new Strategic Plan launching this year, Mercy Housing is doubling down on our resident-centered approach. Supporters like you have made my time at Mercy Housing truly rewarding.
Thank you for all that you do for people in need!
President and CEO
