Dear Friend,

While we remain in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mercy Connections endures as a beacon of hope, providing education and connection for hundreds of fellow community members. During this unprecedented time, your support is needed now more than ever.

Most of our participants and their families experienced financial and emotional challenges long before the crisis hit. When our state and economy closed down, we immediately acted to help them stay safe, meet urgent needs and strengthen resiliency.

Online learning and wellbeing programs are operating at near capacity. Two initiatives, Curbside Connected and Sotto Food Shares, were created to provide hundreds of meals and other essentials on a weekly basis to families in need. These critical services will continue as long as necessary to help people remain on track to achieve their goals.

In the words of Maribeth, Mercy Connections has helped me in ways that I never could have imagined. They helped me find my voice and gave me my power back. Reaching out and holding classes [during COVID-19] has given me the routine that I need, making me feel like I’m not alone.

Now, we are reaching people across the state and in greater numbers, including:

  • Women released from prison rebuilding their lives;
  • Aspiring entrepreneurs planning new ventures in uncertain economic times;
  • New Americans focused on learning and advancing themselves and their families;
  • Individuals living in isolation seeking belonging and purpose.

Please make a gift to raise community resilience and improve lives of people like Maribeth who rely on Mercy Connections.

With gratitude and hope,

Lisa Falcone
Executive Director
