Thanks to major grants from three institutions, thousands of people will be able to rebuild their lives.

The Polk Bros. Foundation awarded Mercy Housing Lakefront a $135,000 grant to preserve affordable rental homes in Chicago.  $100,000 in support from Pierce & Associates will be utilized to further the goals of the Moving Forward Together campaign. Citi Foundation granted $100,000 in support of Mercy Housing Lakefront’s Financial Capability and Empowerment Initiative.  Together, these grants will help further the goals of the Moving Forward Together Campaign to build or preserve 7,500 affordable homes and enable 20,000 people to live in hope.
