What We Do
House of Mercy provides hope, healing, and a home for persons living with HIV/AIDS. House of Mercy is a ministry of the Sisters of Mercy that serves low-income people from throughout North Carolina. Due to our location in Belmont, most of our residents come to us from Gaston and Mecklenburg counties. IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS: How we have been affected: We have restricted all visitors and volunteers to and from the residence until further notice. This means that we are no longer receiving our regular meal donations and both our in-kind and financial donations have decreased over the last few months. How you can help: Please consider purchasing items from our Amazon wish list (located here: to ship to us, or delivering in-kind donations directly as well. Donations can be dropped off on the front porch of the residence at 304 McAuley Circle in Belmont. Please call (704) 825-3000 to let the staff know if you plan to make a delivery. As a residential facility, we have many of the same needs as a typical household (paper products, hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, etc.) and are still having trouble locating some of these items due to shortages. Monetary donations are always helpful and appreciated.
Interesting Info
  • Nearly 350 persons living with HIV/AIDS have made House of Mercy their home since 1991.
  • Over the last 3 years, all of our residents continuing antiretroviral meds showed improved lab results and 50% were able to move to more independent living.
