On May 18, 2021, the House of Mercy celebrates its thirtieth anniversary. For three decades the ministry of providing love, dignity, and compassionate care to those living with HIV/AIDS. To commemorate this ministry, the House of Mercy has partnered with a team of faculty and students from Belmont Abbey College to create the Thirty Years of Mercy Project. This digital humanities project documents the legacy of the House of Mercy through a variety of media.
An oral history collection provides insights from individuals sharing their experiences of the House's history. A series of essays places the House's development along the larger story of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, both during the House's founding in 1991 and today. A digital archive will collect materials documenting the House's three decades of ministry.
New additions to these collections will be published over the course of 2021, as we celebrate the House of Mercy's past and contemplate its future.
