We Help Them to Have a Better Life Than Yesterday

What makes Mercy Center unique is that we are able to immediately offer and refer clients to our on-site programs or collaborate with community agencies to address the issues that contribute to financial hardships. 

Who we are ?

Each day we witness lives being changed with kindness, compassion and understanding from our staff and volunteers. We are committed to helping children, families and individuals overcome burdens and obstacles within an environment marked by dignity and justice.

Mercy Center is a part of the community, offering programs and services to help children, families and individuals live a better life.
