Please join our Home for the Holidays Campaign
In these past two years, many of us have spent more time at home than ever before. Our homes wrapped us in warmth and protection, they nurtured us. It feels like our homes are more important than ever.
At Mercy Home, our residents feel the same way! They depend on our residences not just for shelter, but for the long-term support and care they need to live fulfilling and joyful lives. The kind of care we provide—year-round, non-judgmental, and integrated with the community—is sadly rare for people with intellectual or developmental disabilities. Yet, thanks to our staff and our Mercy Home family (including you!), our residents feel safe and cared for in the embrace of Mercy Home.
But like any home, Mercy Home needs some TLC. You can help Mercy Home get much needed TLC with you end of the year donation today. Just click here to make a secure online donation.
Beer, Bourbon, & Bites
Oh, what a night! There was fantastic weather, live music from Trifecta and our guest DJ, excellent food and drinks, an extensive array of raffle items, and so many friends. Thanks to you and all of our supporters, we were able to surpass our fundraising goal to raise money for our Creative Arts Therapy program for children with autism and other intellectual and developmental disabilities at the 5th Annual Beer, Bourbon, & Bites.
Your investment in our work is vital to us – especially as we reopen, refine and expand our services to those we serve. Together, we are laying the foundation for programs of quality and distinction that promote life skills lifelong. We couldn't have done it without you and Beer, Bourbon, and Bites sponsors; THANK YOU!

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.
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.
