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.

Mercy Pedalers reaches out to local men, women and families experiencing homelessness to offer water, food, and hygiene items. Mercy Pedalers volunteers start conversations with members of our community who often feel invisible, and, with humanity and compassion, introduce available services to people who may be reluctant to seek help on their own.

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.

Mercy Foundation funds critical housing programs through a partnership with Mercy Housing California. The organization offers affordable low-income housing programs at 30 multi-family, senior and special-needs properties in the greater Sacramento area. The service-enriched housing changes the lives of families, seniors, and people who have been homeless.
