Mercy Housing Lakefront invites you join us for Moving Forward Together 2019. Share in an exciting and engaging evening of networking, speakers, dinner and awards as we raise awareness and funds for quality affordable Housing. Your presence and support will inspire hope in the lives of thousands of people. Whether it is a senior with a fixed income living free from worry about being forced out of their home due to a rent increase, a formerly homeless veteran no longer wonder where they’ll spend the night in the middle of the winter, or simply a working parent who’s finally able to begin saving for their child’s future, you are helping our residents build foundations for a better life.

Join us for another year of transformational impact in lives and communities.
