Our History

Mercy Association is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that was started based on witnessing the difficult circumstances of the underprivileged refugee community in Seattle. Prompted by the high rate of juvenile incarceration of youth of refugee families from these neighborhoods due to the lack of institutions, resources and programs that could have otherwise guided them and provided a nurturing environment. Their actions have had a tremendous impact on correcting the situation, which they achieved through creating a love for knowledge – both spiritually and academically.
