No One Should Be Homeless
Did you know that homelessness effects three million Americans annually and that 1.2 million of these report mental health issues? For homeless individuals with a mental illness, the daily struggle to meet life's basic necessities can sometimes be nearly impossible - leaving them vulnerable, stigmatized, and alone. Tender Mercies provides a safe supportive home at a much lower cost with a more successful outcome. One night at Tender Mercies costs just $40 compared to University Hospital at over $500 or jail at nearly $100.
