MERCY HOUSING CALIFORNIA
A message from the President
As we dive deeper into another year and have said our goodbyes to a 2021 that was both heartbreaking and hopeful, I want to offer my sincere thanks for all of your ongoing support. The stories we share in this report really illustrate just how much you’ve helped us achieve.
Jannette Finds Her Way Home

A Closer Look
Mercy Housing California welcomed just over 2,000 new residents in 2021 and completed construction on 828 new homes in eight communities throughout the state, including 1801 West Capitol Avenue, Villa de Vida Poway, and more.
Bob Mullarkey is no ordinary senior. At age 62, he walked 25 miles a day for 100 days in 2021 to raise money for Mercy Housing California and bring attention to the state’s homelessness crisis.
