October 23, 2017, Seattle, Washington – Mercy Housing Northwest celebrated its 25th anniversary October 13 in Seattle with its fundraising event, the Power of Home Breakfast. “Twenty-five years ago, five religious communities in the Northwest – including the Edmonds Dominicans, now Adrian Dominicans – had a dream of ending homelessness and creating resilient communities,” said Sister Judy Byron, OP, a member of the Board of Directors. “Last week we celebrated what we have been able to accomplish in collaboration with all those who have joined us in this awesome ministry.”
