About Mercy Housing

We're redefining affordable, low-income housing

Mercy Housing, a national nonprofit organization, is working to build a more humane world where poverty is alleviated, communities are healthy and all people can develop their full potential. We believe that affordable housing and supportive programs improve the economic status of residents, revitalize neighborhoods and stabilize lives. 

Mercy Housing is one of the nation’s largest affordable housing organizations. We participate in the development, preservation, management and/or financing of affordable, program-enriched housing across the country. Mercy Housing serves a variety of populations with housing projects for low-income families, seniors and people with special needs. We acquire and renovate existing housing, as well as develop new affordable rental properties.

Mercy Housing is redefining affordable housing by creating a stable foundation where our residents can explore their potential, supported by practical resident programs such as health classes, financial education, employment initiatives, parenting and after-school programs for children.

Mercy Housing’s work spans 41 states and includes the efforts of the following:

  • Mercy Housing Management Group, a subsidiary of Mercy Housing that provides professional property management
