House of Mercy has provided hope, healing, and a home for 340 men and women living with HIV since its founding in 1991. We fulfill a critical need in the state of North Carolina, providing compassionate care for low-income people with HIV who can no longer care for themselves and face homelessness. By donating or raising funds in support of your walk, you will help dramatically change the lives of those we serve.
Our goal this year is to raise $80,000. In addition to corporate sponsorships, we need individuals and teams to participate and raise money in order to meet our fundraising goal.
It's our 30th Anniversary. Help us reach our goal to raise $80,000 with the 30-Team Challenge. In addition to sponsorships, we need individuals and teams to participate and raise money in order to meet our fundraising goals.
