“Mercy” doesn’t stop at the borders of our campus in West Hartford. The colleagues,
residents and clients of the Mercy Community are engaged in year-round initiatives to
better the world it is part of and the people who need its service. Beneficiaries of our
service work include:
- The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America
- The Alzheimer’s Association, Connecticut Chapter
- Lions Club
- Mart’s House
- Mercy Housing & Shelter’s St. Elizabeth House
- The Salvation Army Greater Hartford
- The West Hartford Food Pantry
In turn, our community is grateful for the support of a dedicated cadre of volunteers.
From high school and college students to retirees and so many others, we are very
fortunate to attract a diverse group of people who are interested in reading to, conversing
with and educating our residents and clients. We have friends who stop by with rescue
greyhounds and other therapy dogs, friends who engage our residents in games and
lectures, and friends who transport residents to religious services. In 2009 and 2010,
we were proud hosts to area companies who chose The Mercy Community for their
Corporate Days of Service.
