Permanent Housing and Caring Support

Tender Mercies provides more than housing. Each resident has his/her own room with a key. All buildings have round the clock staffing and residents are provided with ongoing support from compassionate and experienced staff. Living in a welcoming community with security & dignity is essential for recovery.

Housing Services Outreach Services.

We accept referrals from anyone. The first step is to meet with one of our helpful Outreach Workers and complete an application for services. Applicants must be homeless with a history of mental illness.
