Food, shelter, clothing, advocacy — Rochester, NY’s House of Mercy grassroots homeless shelter and advocacy center operates 24/7, and never closes its doors on those in need.

Operating on a shoestring budget with a very small team, the House of Mercy continues to be a beacon of hope for the poorest of the poor. We never give up on the people we serve.
