Transforming Lives

The Power of Home Breakfast is Mercy Housing Northwest’s sole annual fundraising event, providing support for our Resident Services programming. Each year, hundreds of supporters come together to learn about our work to create safe, healthy and vibrant communities in Washington State.

Mercy Housing Northwest is home to more than 5,000 children and families. With on-site supportive services, such as after-school programming and health and wellness classes, our programs are designed to help individuals and families find stability and thrive. Each and every day, Mercy residents continue to inspire us with their stories of courage and hope.

We invite you to join us on Friday, October 19th, and experience first-hand how Mercy Housing Northwest is creating space for families.


This year, we are excited to announce that our Keynote speaker is Secretary Julian Castro. Bursting on the national scene as the first Hispanic keynote speaker for the 2012 Democratic National Convention, Julian Castro’s lifetime of public service includes Mayor of San Antonio (youngest mayor of a top-50 American city) and the 16th Secretary of HUD under President Barack Obama in 2014. Secretary Castro’s memoir, “An Unlikely Journey: Waking Up from My American Dream,” will be released October 2018.
