Tackling California’s Homelessness Crisis
Homelessness is not inevitable, and we share the goal of making it rare, brief, and non-recurring. Mercy Housing California is all in on solutions that get people off the streets and prevent low-wage renters from joining their ranks. That means more permanent supportive housing, and expanded access to quality, affordable homes.

Tahanan was constructed in half the time and for 30% less cost than comparable developments.Find Out More
