As many of us this week are celebrating the holy days of Passover or Easter, I wish you good health, happiness, and peace for you, your family and friends. Clearly at this time we are being tested as a community but we will get through it.
We made the decision to suspend onsite programs as of March 17th with plans to continue working remotely and to continue serving the South Bronx community. Sometimes we only realize what we're capable of when we're tested. While no one would wish this test on anyone, it has proved the mettle of our participants, our staff, and our supporters.
Along with the program services Mercy Center continues to provide remotely, we have found that it's just as important to sustain our community. Contact by phone, video, email, and text provides critical support and assures our participants that they are not alone.
