Your program is great! It gave me hope that some cares. And it does good for so many others like myself. Too many great things the program has to offer,but I can say it saved my life from freezing to death. God bless the shelter and those who run it!

This place is a nightmare. The Santa Ana armory is a terrifying mix of drugs, violence and theft. This is not a safe place to rest your head. Fights every night, rampant drug use (saw several OD's while I was there) and constant theft is what you should expect. The staff at Mercy house turn a blind eye and often laugh at the antics of the drunks. A terribly run place.
