Mercy House provides housing and supportive services for a variety of homeless population including families, adult men and women, mothers and their children, persons living with HIV/AIODS, individuals overcoming substance addictions, and some who are physically and mentally disabled.

"Together, we overcame the odds and created a new future for those in our care," said Board Chair Father Jerome Karcher.

Mercy House partners with the City of Anaheim, City of Costa Mesa, City of Dana Point, and the City of Ontario to provide outreach to the homeless who are living on the street and in parks.

You can connect with Mercy House at to learn more about ways you can serve the most vulnerable in the community.

Now with the help of Briel and her garage sale fundraiser, a homeless person tonight will have a bed to sleep in and a place of safety.
