The House of Mercy was founded by Sister Grace Miller in 1985, and is dedicated to serving and advocating for Rochester, NY’s homeless citizens.  Food, shelter, clothing, advocacy — operating 24/7, the House of Mercy never closes its doors on people in need.  It is a permanent homeless shelter and drop-in center on Hudson Ave. serving more than 4,000 people a month.
