I came to Mercy with nothing! I had just gotten out of prison and inpatient D&A treatment. I had nobody and nothing. When I came to Mercy they let me in with open arms and said they would help me. Now I’m not used to people helping me because of my past so I was very doubtful, nervous and scared. Everything Mercy said they would do for me, they did. They helped me get back on my feet. I finally got my photo id, social security card, birth certificate and food stamps all because of my case manager Stacy. After not seeing my daughter for 15 months I was finally ready and able to see her because of the woman I have become. Anything that I needed I went to Stacy and she did whatever she could do to help me. I came to Mercy a broken woman and I am leaving today 8/21/14 not completely fixed, but I am well on my way.

Mercy helped me out a lot with things I needed like clothes to start my new job and when I was in need of a place to eat. Mercy Hospice is a very spiritual program that will help you as long as you are helping yourself.

-Diane, Day Guest

The food is nourishing and the place is clean the staff always make me feel welcome. They should be cited for their good performance in helping homeless women.

-Geraldine, Day Guest

This program has helped so many people get nourishment and works on their mannerisms and the food is absolutely great. I eat here daily and I want Mercy to stay just the way it is.

I arrived at Mercy Hospice in 2010 broken down mentally, physically and spiritually. I was on parole and had no where to turn. I wanted to live a life free from drugs and alcohol, but I wasn’t sure how to do that. Thru the kindness, knowledge and generosity of the staff and my fellow Mercy residents, I have not only remained sober, I’m employed, attending college and I have contact with the child I once abandoned for my addiction. If you had told me 5 years ago that my tag line would be #lorilovinglife I wouldn’t have believed you, but it is. I’ve worked diligently to develop a sober network and a relationship with God. I attend AA. And I don’t use under any conditions. My new life began at Mercy Hospice and for that I will be eternally grateful.

Mercy Hospice has been a kind and good place for me. I am 52 years old and homeless. They open their doors to me with open arms. They help me with my health and other issues that have been hindering me such as mental health, drug addiction, and homelessness. They give me a reason to look forward to tomorrow. Thank you Mercy Hospice!

-Kim, Resident

I enjoy Mercy Hospice because of various things they do for us it reminds me of a church family and the staff is outstanding.

-Antoinette, Day Guest

I like keep coming here because of the discipline. When other women get on my nerves I know in here I can’t flip out on them like I would in the streets.

I get nutritious food and Mercy is here to listen to your problems and give you clothing. I am going to volunteer at Mercy to help keep me off the streets doing drugs.
