MARY'S MERCY CENTER, INC.: MEANING AND MISSION
MARY'S MERCY CENTER began its services in September of 1987 with a congregate feeding program called Mary's Table. Mary's Mercy Center, Inc. received its own non-profit status in the state of California and has remained in continual good standing. Currently, the organization is staffed with approximately 300 volunteers, 12 full-time employees, and 9 part time employees. The organization retains and is governed by a thirteen member Board of Director, which meets every other month.
In 1995 Mary's Mercy Center, Inc. opened Veronica's Home of Mercy, a Catholic/Christian long-term transitional home targeting adult pregnant women and their children, 0-7 years of age at time of entry, as an alternative to domestic violence, abortion, substance abuse, and/or homelessness. Between the years of 2002 and 2007, Mary's Mercy Center, Inc. raised funds for an expansion of Veronica's Home of Mercy. Ground-breaking took place September 12, 2007. The new Veronica's Home of Mercy II, an 80-bed modern facility, opened late 2009. The recently renovated Veronica's Home of Mercy I is a 40-bed home. Together these homes offer the residents a comprehensive and individualized program.
Casa Merced I (translated: Home of Mercy), acquired in July of 1999, Casa Merced II, acquired in May of 2006, and Casa Merced III, opened in June 2011, are low income re-entry single family dwellings. These homes are an extension of the program offered to the residents at Veronica's Home of Mercy.
