House of Mercy
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: https://smile.amazon.com/hz/charitylist/ls/14NGJVY6V4NNW/ref=smi_ext_lnk_lcl_cl) 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.
- 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.
- At House of Mercy, our focus is on health and life. In the right community, persons living with HIV can continue to grow socially, emotionally, and physically.
