In response to the COVID-19 epidemic, 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!
Distributions are held every Wednesday to help those in need access healthy food. Volunteers are needed between 9:00am - 1:00pm to help with set up, sorting, distribution, enforcing social distance guidelines and break down. 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.

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.
