Mission Creek Senior Community is the result of Mercy Housing California's collaboration with the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency, the San Francisco Department of Public Health, and the San Francisco Public Library. In collaboration with these organizations MHC developed 139 units of affordable senior housing, an Adult Day Health Center, ground floor retail space, and the newest branch of the San Francisco Public Library. The library was turned over to the city upon completion. Mission Creek is located along a tidal creek with walking trails and plentiful green space, yet near several forms of public transit and neighborhood amenities. The community serves very low income seniors, many of whom are at risk of homelessness or who have HIV/AIDS. Mission Creek has won 13 design awards and recognitions.

Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.
Generally, households earning up to the income limit in the table below for their household size are eligible for units participating in the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program in San Francisco but actual income limits may differ for units at Mission Creek Senior Community.
