About Mercy Housing Northwest
Mercy Housing is creating stable, vibrant and healthy communities for its residents. We build homes, transform lives and help families, individuals and seniors become self-sufficient by providing permanent housing with supportive services for our families. We’ve helped over 100 families build and purchase their own homes.
Mercy Housing Northwest is grounded in the commitment of our five founding communities to address the housing needs of low-income individuals and families. Representatives of the five communities (Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace, Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, Sisters of Providence, Dominican Sisters of Tacoma and Dominican Sisters of Adrian) sit on Mercy Housing Northwest’s Board of Directors and keep the organization focused on its mission and values.
Providing a home that families and individuals can afford is a valuable service. Some households need more. And we provide it. We call this coordination of housing and services “Service-Enriched Housing.”
What does Resident Services or Service-Enriched housing mean?
- After school tutoring & homework club for students
- Exercise, health and wellness opportunities
- Nutrition workshops and healthy cooking classes
- Tax prep and EITC assistance
- Emergency food assistance
- ESL & employment coaching
The goal of Service-Enriched Housing is to help families achieve stability and then to enhance that stability. It is stability that can be the greatest preventative measure to help families avoid homelessness. We accomplish this through dedicated and highly-motivated staff, extensive community partnerships, and a focus on programs that contribute to resident success and outcomes that can be measured.Learn More About Resident Services
