House Of Mercy Receives Grant

The House Of Mercy, a Belmont home for persons living with AIDS, has received a $75,000 grant to be distributed over the next three years from the Kathleen Price and Joseph M. Bryan Family Foundation.

The grant to the House Of Mercy is designed for start-up operating expenses. "Since we are housing homeless persons living with AIDS, we are primarily dependent on the generosity of the private sector for support.

"The grant of $25,000 each year will assist in subsidizing the housing and care for people who otherwise may live and die alone," commented Sister Mary Wright, RSM, executive director of the House of Mercy.

"We are indeed grateful to the Bryan Family Foundation for their generous assistance, commitment to the care of persons living with AIDS and enabling us to provide affordable housing for them."

The House of Mercy, sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy of N.C., will provide a loving, home-like environment for six persons living with AIDS who are no longer able to care for themselves. The House of Mercy is scheduled to open for operation in February 19.

Tax deductible donations may be sent to The House of Mercy, in care of Sister Mary Wright, RSM, Sacred Heart Convent, Belmont, 28012.

Based in Greensboro, the Bryan Family Foundation provides support for non-for-profit organizations seeking to improve conditions and opportunities for the people of North Carolina.
