Housing

For centuries, people who are economically poor have been deprived of safe, decent and affordable housing. Beginning with the first House of Mercy  and extending to this day, Sisters of Mercy have responded to this critical need

In Omaha, Nebraska, in 1981,  we created Mercy Housing, Inc. to provide better and more comprehensive programs than previously accessible.  Today this ministry is one of the largest housing organizations in the United States, providing housing development, property operations and management services. Mercy Housing, Inc. has developed programs in 42 states and the District of Columbia and serves more than 75,000 people.

Our sisters in this ministry serve as  administrators, program managers, case workers, health promoters and volunteers in a variety of housing initiatives.
