    my daughter was placed in a unit for homeless, unfortunately totally out of her realm, she was driven there by friendship shelter in Laguna where she grew up. this is a Mexican area, where they do not accept her, we have begged for almost 2 years to get her out and a promised temporary situation. Mexicans do not speak to her and she has attempted suicide from the isolation (no car). she was placed there with nothing, no sheets, no cup , broken facet ,not a dish, broken down bed and filthy. she has cleaned it up but is in a poor mental state, why can we not trade her unit for something where she grew up in so. one listens. I fear for her death. Someone please help. prisoners go into isolation, she was on her way out of public assistance, why is this being done to human beings..please someone help. She has someone from Mercy that comes and see's her but nothing but broken promises and pain...get her out of there!

We strive to assist our residents in the areas of economic, emotional, and spiritual well-being in order to enhance self-esteem and a sense of personal pride. We value accountability, integrity, and self-sufficiency. The dignity of the individual person and the corresponding respect that follows is the guiding principle of our service to the homeless person.

In order to deal with the complexities of homelessness, Mercy House operates an in house continuum of care where services are available to help individuals and families at any stage of homelessness.
