So, happy this is moving forward as it is so needed for our city. I've commented on this before, but I sincerely hope you consider NOT putting Mercy Housing on the front of the building. Just because this building is being supported by a charitable organization, it doesn't have to have such a charity-sounding, demoralizing name on the front. People who have experienced homelessness deserve dignity, not having a charity sign thrown in their faces every time they go home.

After first reading about this project and supporting it for what it's bringing to the community, I'm wondering if co-urbanize is a front for a christian organization. The main reason I ask is because of the name, Mercy House. There are so many stigmas to being homeless and poor. Is it really necessary to name a place of housing, MERCY to add another stigma to people who live there? The name is just so demoralizing, patronizing, and condescending. There has to be a better name. How about Valley Senior Housing. Simple. No platitudes, hidden agenda, or reminders of suffering. Haven't people experiencing homelessness suffered enough? Also, it's hard to see in the logo, but it looks like a cross is hidden in there. That feels like a trick of some kind. If you're christian, then just say so, and stop trying to hide it.

This is a great location in the Valley because there are stores and other places nearby that people need to go to on a weekly basis. It would be great to have shuttle service for people who can't get around easily. Good bus lines right there, but some people have serious mobility issues.
