On October 13, nearly 600 supporters joined us for an inspiring morning at the Power of Home Breakfast! We are excited to report that this year’s event was the most successful one to date, generating a whopping $280,000 (and counting)! The money raised — 22% more than last year — will fund program services and continue our work helping residents and families thrive!
We are thankful for our Table Captains and Event Sponsors, who helped us rally more friends and raise more funds than ever before.
This year’s program featured special guests and speakers, including Jane Graf, (President and CEO of Mercy Housing Inc.), Kadijatou and Mariam (our mother-daughter pair of resident speakers) and Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson (our featured speaker). Our MHNW board members and staff, including Sean Heron, Sr. Judy Byron, OP, Susanna Tran, and Vy Le, also played a key role in our program. We are especially thankful to all our board members, staff, event volunteers, community supporters and esteemed guests for their contributions.
This year’s event highlighted the work that Mercy Housing Northwest does to help our residents and families thrive. We are excited to be adding more family housing in Seattle in the upcoming year, and hope you will consider joining us in our efforts! Please take a few minutes out of your day to catch a glimpse of the story that Wanda and Lucy shared with our guests at the event. We hope it will inspire you to share the work we do with your friends and colleagues:
