The affordable housing crisis doesn’t just affect those living in big, coastal cities, it affects people all across the United States. Mercy Housing Mountain Plains is working to build a more humane world where poverty is alleviated, communities are healthy, and people can develop their full potential.
Francis Peak View in Kaysville is just one of the affordable housing communities and is home to 120 low-income families. The onsite Resident Services Program helps families maintain housing and achieve self-sufficiency, secure employment, continue education, and improve their health. With a focus on health and wellness, staff provides residents with health-related services and education on topics such as chronic disease, exercise, and nutrition to encourage healthy behaviors and improve overall health.
To get involved you can enjoy getting your hands dirty by helping with property projects, share your skills by teaching a class, or help residents celebrate by hosting community events.
SelectHealth recognizes the empowering aid of Mercy Housing Mountain Plains as another example of how Utah Gives Back.
