Dear Friend,

The power of Mercy Connections is to welcome, support and respect ALL people in our community, regardless of circumstances. During this healthcare crisis, one thing is perfectly clear—staying connected to our vulnerable participants is needed now more than ever.

Many of our participants are isolated, scared, lacking resources and facing many other challenges. Our skilled and experienced employees are doing an extraordinary job meeting the new needs and challenges of those who rely on us. Without missing a beat, our staff and exceptional volunteers are using every mode of communications to ensure connection, safety and well-being for those we serve. From those in our education programs to women recently released from prison, we are working differently and with urgency to support their needs.  As always, Mercy Connections is playing a critical role in our community.

Keeping Mercy Connections on the front-lines requires your support. Our Annual May Luncheon, an event that supports and celebrates Mercy Connections and our beloved community, raises $200K annually for our organization. Due to the current reality, we have suspended the Luncheon with hopes of rescheduling; however, we cannot postpone the financial need.

To continue to serve our vulnerable population when they need us most, we are asking for your support today. If you can, please make a gift now to help Mercy Connections and the hundreds of adults who are relying on our mission.

These are extraordinary times. We must stay connected, hopeful, compassionate and strong.

With deep gratitude,

Lisa Falcone
Executive Director
