House of Mercy's vision for building up the community is all encompassing and multi-faceted. There are plenty of other agencies that do some of what we do. We believe that what is lacking in the other agencies is the case management and supportive care. We feel that the key to successfully getting people to transform out of their situation and to not return, is to help them heal all the way around, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. This can be achieved through treatment plans, case management and follow up services.
There's No Place Like Home. House of Mercy (HoM) is a fellowship of believers birthed out of the belief that everyone has a past, but we are concerned with your future. HoM sets strong Biblical truths as the center of its foundation. Those truths compel us to seek and save the lost, feed the hungry, clothe the naked and break the yokes of oppression and bondage because we are all Children of God and as such, we all deserve Mercy, Love and Forgiveness in an atmosphere free of Judgement.
SOUL, House of Mercy's outreach, works to meet people where they are and provide them with the tools and resources necessary to heal and grow. SOUL, through non-judgmental acceptance, serves as a parachute for the under-housed, the under-educated, the formerly incarcerated, the addict, and the underemployed to enable a soft reentry into a life filled with their full potential. The goal is to give the “underdog” the keys and tools they need to be productive, successful members of society.
On the streets and in the prisons, SOUL meets people where they are and shows them that there is a way out of their situation and that they are worth finding and following that way.
Through the HoM program, people are given personalized care to guide them away from behaviors which lead to their situation and given skills to begin changing these behaviors.
HoM realizes that trauma comes in many forms; war, divorce, loss of career, incarceration, abandonment and abuse. We realize those traumas cause many behaviors attempting to cope. We identify those traumas through the current behaviors and teach the coping mechanisms necessary to deal with the traumas and erase the need for self-medication and rebellious, criminal behavior which has been causing self-harm through classes, groups, one on one, and computer training.
House of Mercy will facilitate and manage temporary housing in the form of dorm living (free of charge) as well as group home living (nominal fee).
The treatment teams will triage each entrant into the program based on degree of care and financial means to decide the housing plan which works best.
The housing program enables a "soft landing" where the focus can shift from survival and onto the future.
The housing program coupled with the Transformation Center will allow the residents to walk into that future.
The House of Mercy Transformation Day Center will serve as a means for the underhoused, undereducated and underemployed to gain the resources needed to become a productive member of society.
The Transformation Center will include a computer lab, a soup kitchen as well as a staff of volunteers who will run groups, classes and one on one counseling.
Under the care of a treatment team, each person will be provided individualized help to face and surmount the hurdles currently keeping them from being the best that they can be.
With this multi-faceted facility multiple services will be offered through various ministries and programs under the same building. Including:
Obtaining Credentials and Support
