The Mercy Connections way

We approach our mission with a simple philosophy that permeates every class, program and event we offer. We call it “radical hospitality.” This idea is made visible by the warm, welcoming environment of our space. We respect every person who comes to us for help. We have faith in each person’s ability to move toward greater self-sufficiency.  At Mercy Connections, we understand that friendship and support are just as important as computer skills or language training.
