    My experience visiting the House of Mercy was very traumatic . When I heard how. the director who is. charge now. talk to the residents I was shocked . I mean for her to supposed to be christian and to help the less fortune. or the abused it is sad. To think that the board is allowing her to continue on is ashame . Peoples are giving big donations and they are not being used for the people in need. The House of Mercy have helped to many people over the years for one person who do not have the heart to bring it down. The director have women with babies out un the middle of the night in cold weather. The director haveput out several ladies with babies in the midnight hiurs. The residents are afraid to speak out if something afraid they will get put out .
