Mother of Mercy House received a $500 Community Impact Award from CFGP to be used towards their supportive services in the Kensington and Allegheny sections of Philadelphia.
Mother of Mercy House is a relatively new nonprofit organization in Philadelphia that was created to bring the Church to an area of the City where it had not been present in years. Acting as a multi-purpose facility, Mother of Mercy House celebrates daily Mass and collects and distributes food items, and provides supportive services to those affected by addiction. The organization serves a neighborhood that is deeply impoverished and plagued by prostitution, addiction, unemployment and hunger.
