Partnering with Mercy Housing Helps Transform Lives in Your City.
To kick-off our Back-to-School campaign this year, we will be raising funds to provide 1,250 kids new backpacks and school supplies for a fresh start to the 2019-2020 school year. A $50 donation will purchase a brand-new backpack stuffed with school supplies for a child.New Backpacks, Fresh Start

Women and people of color are disproportionately affected by eviction. Having an eviction on one’s record often has a debilitating effect on finding housing and continues the cycle of poverty. When a Mercy Housing Northwest resident has trouble making their rent, we work with them on a housing support plan and, when appropriate, offer financial assistance through the Sister Edwardine Eviction Prevention Fund.
You can make a significant and direct impact in a person’s life by contributing to the Fund today:Donate to Eviction Prevention Fund

Impact on Our Residents
Providing a home that families and individuals can afford is a valuable service. Some households need more. And we provide it. We call this coordination of housing and services “Service-Enriched Housing.”
What does Resident Services or Service-Enriched housing mean?
- After school tutoring & homework club for students
- Exercise, health and wellness opportunities
- Nutrition workshops and healthy cooking classes
- Tax prep and EITC assistance
- Emergency food assistance
- ESL & employment coaching
The goal of Service-Enriched Housing is to help families achieve stability and then to enhance that stability. It is stability that can be the greatest preventative measure to help families avoid homelessness. We accomplish this through dedicated and highly-motivated staff, extensive community partnerships, and a focus on programs that contribute to resident success and outcomes that can be measured.
We not only believe that affordable housing and supportive programs improve the economic status of residents, transform neighborhoods and stabilize lives—the evidence shows that it does.
- 74% of our residents in Washington have consistently paid their rent on time.
- 91% of our residents in Washington have maintained their housing for 1+ year.
- 72% of our residents in Washington have maintained their housing for 2+ years.
- 84% of our residents in Washington have accessed 5 or more basic and enhanced skill-building services.
We Hope You’ll Join Us on the Next Project.
