Mercy Home is excited to celebrate Black Excellence during Black History Month. To kick-off, we had the opportunity to discuss with staff and our Respite-Program participants what this monumental month means to them.
Director of Development, Jamal A. Williams, shared: “A Celebration of Black Influence -- A time to pay homage to those before us whose sacrifices and transformational works have paved paths while dually celebrating the rise and contributions of those in present time who will influence our future”
Chief Compliance Officer, Doreth Edwards, shared: “Black History Month provides us an opportunity to celebrate the achievement of historical figures and others who have positively impacted our society; we learn more about how we can strive for a better world.”
Trina* of Mercy Home’s Respite Program shared that she will celebrate the month by “talking about people who make a difference in the black community” and focus on “living with unity and love”.
