Read our latest Annual Report
Without a doubt, this past year has tested us and the people in our care. When New York City became the epicenter of a global health crisis, many of our programs were suspended and the people we support were unable to leave their homes due to COVID-19 safety guidelines. The pandemic made us pause, reflect, and establish new initiatives to ensure that our residents were able to remain healthy, happy, and safe.
The incredible strides we made as an organization were made possible by our dedicated staff who stepped up during the tough times and helped us navigate through this new reality. Throughout all the growth and change we experienced, they never wavered on our mission to enrich the lives of adults and children with developmental disabilities.
Watch the Celebration of Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month
We proudly celebrated AMH, Adrian, DJ, Keron, James, and Matthew at our first-ever virtual #ABILITIYOVERDISABILITIES art show supported by the Fellone Accordino Family Trust and the Board of Directors.
During the event, virtual guests had an opportunity to see first-hand how art and art therapy affect the people in our care. Watch the event in its entirety in the link above. Or, if you would like to learn about the artistic process of individual artists, just click on one of the links below.
We provide essential services for children and adults with developmental disabilities. Mercy Home’s mission is to ensure the quality of life for persons with developmental disabilities through the recognition of each person’s inherent dignity and right to a life filled with learning and love. Our mission is fulfilled in practice through our core values: respect, trust, teamwork, care, and compassion.
