CREATING A SENSE OF HOME
Dear Partner in Hope,
The strength and resilience that we witnessed in 2018 from the residents living in Mercy Housing properties was inspirational. In partnership with our employees, volunteers, financial and program partners, and donors, we continue to make a difference by supporting the hopes and dreams of everyone that calls Mercy Housing their home. As proud participants in that work, we are confident that we speak for all when we say we are more determined than ever to continue expanding that vision for a better future; where everyone has a stable, affordable home, and a place to pursue their dreams.
As we enter our 38th year, we are struck by the power of partnership and collaboration. From our Founding Communities of Catholic Sisters who continue to invest in us, to the philanthropic community that strives to end the homelessness crisis, to our public partners who are supporting affordable housing at unprecedented levels, and our financial partners who play an essential role – we thank you. Collaboration with Resident Service partners is mutually beneficial. These robust relationships assure residents’ access to opportunities for education, health, childcare, and health and wellness. We have a sure recipe for success.
Our collective efforts are stabilizing communities for the betterment of our futures. We hope our 2018 annual report will inspire you to remain steadfast in your support of our work. Mercy Housing remains committed and thanks all of you for your willingness to join us on this journey. It is a critical mission at a critical time.
And finally, thank you for the vital work that you do in support of Mercy Housing residents – they are the heart of our mission and will continue to be our guiding light of hope.
Yours in Hope,
President & CEO
