About

Mercy Housing Boulevard Court is an affordable housing community in Sacramento. It is home to 75 individuals who were formerly homeless and may have special needs such as mental/physical impairments. This volunteer will lead a group that will use art as a means to enhance residents' physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Background knowledge, education, and/or experience with this population is desirable, but not required. Ability to effectively interact with residents and employees with diverse ethnic backgrounds, religious views, political affiliation, cultural backgrounds, lifestyles, and sexual orientation is necessary.
