Power of Connection: Stories of Strength & Resilience 



Tuesday, June 7, 2022
Program 11:00 am- 12:00 pm


Please join us virtually as we stream live from HULA LAKESIDE. We’ll bring you the stories Mercy Connections is known for sharing at our annual event, direct to your home or place of work. The program is sure to be powerful and will feature the strength, progress, and resiliency of participants. During this event, we will honor 20 years of Mercy Connections and the Vermont Sisters of Mercy who founded the organization. 

Founded in 2001, Mercy Connections’ mission empowers people to make significant life changes through education, mentoring, entrepreneurship and community. The organization values the inherent dignity of each person and believes that everyone is worthy of compassion and the opportunity to pursue personal aspirations within a supportive learning community.  

Two decades later, Mercy Connections has grown into a robust, highly-regarded social justice and learning organization, annually serving a community of more than 450 diverse, multi-cultural adults from ages 18 to 75. Mercy Connections is known for: being a leader in preparing women to launch and operate their own businesses; providing resources, support and much-needed social capital to women trying to reclaim their lives after incarceration; and offering a diverse portfolio of adult education classes, academic tutoring, self-development, and support programs to assist in higher education pursuits, jobs, U.S. citizenship exam preparation, community and leadership positions, recovery and wellbeing.  

As we commemorate this milestone, we are doubly committed to continuing this work for the next 20 years and beyond. We hope you’ll join us!
