Mercy Housing Southeast provides affordable housing to over 5,500 low-income families, seniors and individuals across the southeast. Over two-thirds of our footprint is in Georgia, with over 2,300 homes in the state. The residents we serve are low or very low-income earning an average annual income of about $15,874 and even lower ($11,665) for seniors and special needs residents on fixed incomes.
In addition to providing quality affordable housing, MHSE delivers supportive services designed to empower residents to reach their goals and improve the communities they call home.
