The Homeless Prenatal Program (HPP) Community Campus expansion is primarily an 8-story mixed-use building and its connection points built adjacent to HPP’s current building at the corner of 18th Street and Potrero Avenue. The campus expansion will include supportive housing, office space, and supportive services all in a single project at 2530 18th street. You can find more information about the project on the website:

The project will enable the Homeless Prenatal Program to expand the critical services they provide to families in the city; creating a campus community of care that will support the health and growth of the countless families and children who make up the community they touch through their work.

Mercy Housing will support HPP in their campus expansion plan. More specifically, Mercy Housing will take the lead on the financing and development of the residential portion of the project, as well as coordinate with HPP and their consultants on the expanded office and services space.

NINE dot ARTS is the art curation and consulting firm overseeing the public artwork portion of the campus expansion. 

The artwork for the new Mercy Housing and Homeless Prenatal Program partnership will reflect the power of community and home. The artwork will work to empower the visitors, residents, and staff. It will bring hope, comfort, and connection to the internal and external community. 

The artwork will integrate with and complement the thoughtful design. It will support the architectural story of embrace and comfort.
