In partnership with Project Community Connections, Inc. (PCCI), we opened Thrive Sweet Auburn, a 117-unit mixed-use community in Atlanta’s historic Sweet Auburn District.


We closed on Henderson Place, a partnership with the Historic District Development Corporation (HDDC) that will bring 76 new apartment homes to the Old Fourth Ward.


Over the past three years, we have received funding for student achievement with BOOST funds, through the American Rescue Plan fund to the state of Georgia. We provided enhanced Out-of-School Time activities, technology support, tutoring, field trips, and summer camps. 


Mercy Housing Southeast

With headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, Mercy Housing Southeast (MHSE) provides stable and affordable housing for people with low incomes, including families and seniors. Having access to stable housing is the foundation of healthy living, which is why each MHSE community provides service-enriched programming for every resident who calls MHSE home. We are proud to be recognized for our expertise in delivering inclusive, high-quality homes where residents can easily access schools, grocery stores, healthcare, jobs, parks, and public transportation.

Thriving in Sweet Auburn

Located in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward neighborhood, Thrive Sweet Auburn features 117 affordable apartment homes and approximately 12,000 square feet of commercial space that will house organizations offering supportive services for residents and Atlantans who are experiencing homelessness. 

“This mixed-use community created by PCCI and Mercy Housing is an example of a strong nonprofit partnership that will deliver positive impacts for both residents and the larger community,” says Mercy Housing Southeast President, James Alexander. “And for this new affordable housing community to be located in one of Atlanta’s most historic neighborhoods, is really special.”

The first floor of this dynamic new community will be the headquarters for PCCI. The ground floor will also provide shared space featuring a community kitchen and offices for First Step Staffing. Together, PCCI and First Step Staffing’s colocation will serve clients who are navigating complex systems as they work to rebuild their lives by providing employment opportunities to garner the wages necessary to maintain secure housing and invest in their future.

Conveniently located near the King Memorial MARTA Station, Grady Memorial Hospital, and Georgia State University, three floors of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, developed and managed by Mercy Housing, will provide much-needed housing in an area where affordable rentals are increasingly hard to procure.

"The partnership between PCCI and MHSE to develop Thrive Sweet Auburn has brought a lasting impact to the Sweet Auburn Community," said Jimiyu Evans, Co-CEO, Project Community Connections, Inc. "We are seeing and feeling the positive transformation of this corridor daily, allowing residents, visitors, and neighbors the access and opportunity to Thrive."
