Current Comments on House of Mercy:
Comment 1. - User Regenia Johnson states - yes, was a resident when i lived in columbus. had a life changing experince with Mother Harris. Comment 2. - User Laniece Johnson states - my family was there for a short period of time. we were instantly and Im grantful for that.. Though I hated some of the stricted rules, like wearing skirts and attendign church everyday, there was a life lesson in there. Comment 3. - User Mark Manguno states - This homeless shelter refuses to allow haven to people who they even suspect of being homosexual. They should be shut down. Mercy only for those like you is not mercy at all. Comment 4. - User Gabriele states - I dropped off a clothes donation on 2-23-13 @ the House of Mercy on 3rd Ave in Cols.GA and was very disappointed in the way this was handled.Some of the clothes I donated had never been worn before, they were stainless, clean, and neatly folded. The box with the clothes was placed in a wet, mildew smelly storage shed filled with hundreds of garbage bags filled with clothes. It looked like no one ever took time to go thru all those items. I had called prior to the drop off of the items and the person I talked to should have told me over the phone that they are not in need of any clothes donations and I would have taken it elsewhere. Comment 5. - User chris states - I arrived a wreck. I left a better person; with purpose. Miles away from home (Syracuse, NY), the House of Mercy's warmth, organization, care and nurturing manner was quite welcoming. I was literally dumped on the steps of The House of Mercy with my five children during an extended visit with estranged relatives. What was meant for evil, God turned around for my good and His glory. Living there was one of the BEST things that has ever happened to me! THANK YOU Mo. Harris! Thank you House of Mercy! Comment 6. - User RODERICK THOMAS states - I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS OUT IN MY MESS,DOING DRUGS AND ALCOHOL ETC.. I FINALLY HIT ROCK BOTTOM. SISTER BARROWS WELCOME ME AND HER STAFF WITH OPEN ARMS. AND FED AND NURTURED ME BACK TO HEALTH WITH THE WORD OF GOD. I'LL NEVER FORGET AND WILL ALWAYS BE GRATEFUL TO THE HOUSE OF MERCY.
