Care for the Poor and Elderly

Mercy Foundation donors help fund critical programs and services that otherwise would not be available to those who need housing, meals and other support to survive.

At Sacramento Loaves & Fishes, homeless guests receive a hot meal, and can safely refresh themselves at the campus’s Friendship Park. Mustard Seed School offers homeless children a safe, nurturing learning environment. Maryhouse, a daytime shelter for homeless women and children, provides short-term guidance to guide them toward independence and self-sufficiency.

Regional volunteers from Mercy Volunteer Corps provide a tangible service to the community by staffing crucial administrative roles at Mercy ministries, such as at Maryhouse and the Clean & Sober program at Sacramento Loaves & Fishes.
