In response to the COVID-19 epidemic, Mercy Housing has shifted our resident service priorities to focus on the immediate needs of residents. Many of our residents are coping, as most Americans, with the stress of isolation, lost income and jobs, struggles to meet immediate food and household essential needs, school closures, and children needing to develop remote learning routines.
Food insecurity is one of the most pressing needs and YOU can help us meet those needs all while feeling connected to the community in a fulfilling way!
Our weekly food bank is well utilized, which often makes it difficult for staff to move and distribute alone. Join us and roll up your sleeves to organize and help with distribution. Volunteers like you make it possible!
Distributions are held Tuesdays to help those in need access healthy food. Volunteers are needed between 8:30am - 10:30am. We will practice safe social distance protocols, and we ask that all volunteers wear sturdy tennis shoes or boots and bring a mask and gloves.
John King Senior Community is comprised of 91 senior-restricted rental units affordable to those with incomes below 50 percent of the Area Median Income (AMI). The community includes an on-site senior center as well as a child care center, making it one of the few, if not the only, truly intergeneration projects in the Bay Area.

To create stable, vibrant and healthy communities by developing, financing and operating affordable, program-enriched housing for families, seniors and people with special needs who lack the economic resources to access quality, safe housing opportunities.
Mercy Housing was founded in 1981 in response to the lack of stable, affordable housing for vulnerable populations. In working to fulfill our mission, Mercy Housing California has developed more than 154 affordable housing communities in 36 counties throughout California, providing 17,000+ homes and serving over 24,000 people in need.
Mercy's commitment to program-enriched housing distinguishes us from many other large scale affordable housing developers. Housing is foundational - everyone needs a home. But many people who have endured poverty and other challenges need an additional hand-up to create the lives they want for themselves and their families. Our dedicated staff and volunteers work with residents right in their homes and neighborhoods on issues like health and wellness, housing stability, financial security as well as provide a full range of enriching out-of-school time options for youth.
