The Mercy Center is a 24-hour permanent supportive housing program for formerly homeless individuals living with HIV/AIDS. Mercy Center is located at 740, 742, and 752 Austen Place, which is part of the historical Ledbetter Heights neighborhood. Mercy Center properties were originally built in the late 1800s. The specific mission of the Mercy Center program is to provide permanent, safe, and nurturing housing in which homeless persons with HIV/AIDS can live as productive and active lives as possible. The Mercy Center is the only residential facility of its kind north of Interstate 10 in Louisiana.
