Who We Serve
Rotary Club of Mercer Island is an active service organization. We support multiple local organizations and global projects with volunteer service and grant funding.
Housing & Food Security
Chair: Todd White
The housing and food insecurity programs are focused on assisting members of our community by partnering with The Hope Factory to build tiny homes and Operation Night Watch to serve hot meals. These two fantastic organizations provide a direct and meaningful benefit to members of our community who need a little help.
A Hope Factory tiny home provides a temporary, secure and dry space which enables individuals to stabilize their situation, interact with counselors and learn from others who have been through a similar experience. They can then seek meaningful employment and ultimately move out from the tiny home into a more traditional housing solution.
Operation Night Watch provides a variety of critically needed services to our community members to include hot meals on a daily basis, housing solutions and street ministry.
