I am happy to tell my story. Mercy housing at 227 7th street between Howard and Folsom has the most incompetent inadequate managment you could imagine. Like the previous writer they allow violence in the building out of control noise which I believe was abuse that I reported and they did nothing, but justified the problem. My apartment was broken into twice by other tenants and it was absolutely nothing done by management. Infact they made it out to be my fault by saying things like, "oh I'm sure it was a mistake and the tenant that broke in (who by the way beats his family or after thinking about it and seeing how things played out I really think the wife was giving the beatings) the landord put in my incident report that he (the guy that broke in) wasn't in his right state of mind he was confused. So folks think about it any one can break into your home and say that they were confused and not in the right frame of mind and get away with it. Trust me there is plenty more but, I will stop here with a warning and say WARNING..........DON'T RENT THERE. And last, everyone there is not treated equal.

How would you like to live in a building where your neighbors drink and drug all day and then try to murder each other at night and the building management does absolutely nothing to stop it??? Welcome to The Rose on 6th St. San Francisco which is run by Mercy Housing. They are completely incompetent, uneducated, and neglectful of their tenants. Their management philosophy consists of hiring the most low class unqualified individuals that they can find, providing them with little to no training or supervision and then putting them in charge of buildings occupied by the most mentally ill, alcoholic, drug addicted individuals on the planet. Then they sit back collecting tax payer money and then blame the victim when one tenant is attacked by another tenant.

They let violent criminals move into our building. And they KNEW they were violent criminals because in order to move in you must provide Mercy Housing with a copy of a police rap sheet. Mercy allowed them to drink and drug, and deal drugs in the building as much as they wanted and they could beat people up whenever they wanted. Tenants have gotten beaten up and stabbed by other tenants. And Mercy Housing did NOTHING to prevent it. They would serve time in jail and as soon as they were released they would move right back into The Rose. One of my neighbors was sleeping one night and another tenant came into his room and threw boiling hot oil all over him. Mercy Housing didn't care. They still continue to let violent thugs move into our building and beat up whoever they want whenever they want. They can even set fire to the place and they wont get evicted. And this is a building that also houses the poor, the elderly and handicapped. Which is why most tenants refer to The Rose as Merciless Housing.

My friend on the 2nd floor was handicapped and could not move around without a wheelchair. Mercy Housing refused to build a handicapped accessible shower for him. Mercy housing refused to build handicapped accessible fire exit for him.

Please...if you are concerned about your life and dignity...stay away from Mercy Housing. Please do not give these people any more donations or Government contracts.

They are the worst. The absolute World's Worst. The only reason they are in the business of supportive housing is so they can line their own pockets with lucrative government contracts while providing the bare minimum for their tenants. The tenants can drink and drug and kill each other if they want to as long as they are paying the rent on time that's all Mercy Housing really cares about.
