Mercy Housing California

Together, we have what it takes to build a healthier, housed California. 

At Mercy Housing California, we develop and operate affordable, service-enriched housing that changes the lives of families, seniors, and people who have been homeless. We work with public and private partners throughout the state to help keep the most vulnerable in our communities stably housed and prevent homelessness. From construction to community development, we advance innovative solutions to meet the scale and urgency of California’s housing crisis.

Mercy Housing California (MHC) is headquartered in San Francisco, with regional offices in Sacramento and Los Angeles. We are the largest regional division of Mercy Housing, Inc., the nation’s largest nonprofit affordable housing developer. Mercy Housing California partners with Mercy Housing Management Group as the management agent for our California communities.

Residents Tell Their Stories

Tackling California’s Homelessness Crisis

Homelessness is not inevitable, and we share the goal of making it rare, brief, and non-recurring. Mercy Housing California is all in on solutions that get people off the streets and prevent low-wage renters from joining their ranks. That means more permanent supportive housing, and expanded access to quality, affordable homes.

Research by UC Berkeley has found that our new Tahanan Supportive Housing community, developed in partnership with Tipping Point Community and the San Francisco Housing Accelerator Fund, represents a breakthrough model to help our state build affordable homes. Tahanan was constructed in half the time and for 30% less cost than comparable developments.
