Thursday, May 5th
A beautiful day called for beautiful flowers and Flower Bodega delivered. We hosted our first hybrid Flower Power fundraiser for Mercy Home and Plant-Grow-Give. Thanks to the fantastic Aurea Sanabria Molaei people at home and guests that joined us in person had a chance to learn how professionals create eye-catching and captivating floral arrangements. Everyone had so much fun, and our competitive spirits emerged as we showed off our work.
We raised over $10,000 to help support Mercy Home and Plant-Grow-Give's horticultural therapy and organic farming project and help kick off the growing season. Please take a minute to enjoy the photos from the event.

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.
