Mercy Housing California is the largest operating partner of Mercy Housing, Inc., the nation’s largest nonprofit owner of service enriched affordable housing. Formed in 1981, Mercy Housing California owns and manages more than 11,000 homes for over 16,500 lower income Californians.

Mercy Housing California has developed the Placentia Veterans Village, a high quality, service enriched, affordable apartment development for United States Military Veterans who are homeless and or disabled. The development site was formerly on a 3.65-acre unimproved site comprised of two parcels, one parcel is owned by the Orange County Flood Control District and the adjacent parcel was owned by a private party.

The development includes 50 furnished apartment homes (49 for veterans and 1 for one-site management unit), a courtyard, community garden, recreation room, energy efficient design and appliances, computer room, and resident services offices. The state-of-the-art development is LEED Gold certified, utilizing energy efficient design principles and building materials.
