A RETURN TO OUR ROOTS

Since 1981, Mercy Housing has been in the forefront of bringing stable affordable housing to families, seniors, and people with special needs.

Today, the need is greater than ever.

Our 2020—2024 Strategic Plan is an evolution that focuses on our origins and the resident-centered services that have always set us apart.

We engage with residents by listening, responding, and supporting them in achieving their dreams. By leveraging our national scale, we can continue to provide even more affordable housing across the United States to meet the very real need.

 

With this plan, Mercy Housing puts residents at the center of our work — our North Star — to guide us in all of our decisions.
