Independent Living in a vibrant community

Campaign for The Mercy Community

As the needs of the Greater Hartford community evolve and diversify, so too does our response. Since our humble beginnings, we have added to, changed, and improved our campus facilities to accommodate new residents and programs and to create an environment that best serves the needs of older adults and the underserved poor.

Over the years, our capital campaigns have drawn the support of benefactors, families, and friends of the Sisters of Mercy who share our vision to enhance the quality of lives for an aging population.  Most recently, through the generosity of individual donors, corporations, and foundations, we remodeled the Archbishop John F. Whealon Chapel of Our Lady on the third floor of Saint Mary Home, installed Automatic Defibrillator Units at The McAuley and Saint Mary Home, and opened a Library for the residents of Saint Mary Home.
