By collaborating with socially responsible developers, Mercy Community Capital has helped finance the development of single and multifamily homes for rental and homeownership. These developments help underserved communities, including people with low-incomes, seniors, farm workers, people who have experienced homelessness, and people with disabilities.
For more than 40 years, Mercy Housing has worked to address the shortage of affordable housing across the country, guided by our core values of respect, justice, and mercy. Every day, we strive to achieve more because we are constructing more than just buildings — we are building communities.
