Located on Howard, between 6th Street and Trumbull, MEP is near downtown Detroit in the Corktown neighborhood, south of the old Tiger Stadium site.

Take any interstate to the Lodge/M-10 South and exit at Howard St. Go to the rightmost lane and turn right onto Howard St. Go past one stop sign. Mercy Education Project is located toward the end of the next block on the right-hand side.

Parking:  Our location has ample street parking on Howard St., in the fenced lot in front of the building or behind the building (entrance on Abbott St, one block north of Howard).

Look for the Mercy Education Project signs on the front and rear of the building.
