Mercy Corps opens new global headquarters in downtown Portland - October 9, 2009



Mercy Corps, which has called Portland home for three decades, opened the doors of its new global headquarters this morning in downtown's Old Town Chinatown neighborhood.


The building will house the Mercy Corps Action Center, Mercy Corps Northwest, The Lemelson Foundation, and Mercy Corps Global Headquarters. Nick was inspired by Congressman Earl Blumenauer's remarks at the celebration. The Skidmore Fountain represents our past, he said; Mercy Corps, our future.
