About Mercy

Purpose and Philosophy


House of Mercy is a mission based, excellence driven, customer focused, learning organization that is dedicated to providing for the unmet health, wellness and human services needs of those most at risk in our society. 


We believe in the inherent dignity and right of all people to be treated with respect and genuine personal concern.

We believe that love, justice, mercy and compassion are integral components in working with the disadvantaged.

We believe that we must provide quality care, offering our professional skills and knowledge in a supportive and warmly human manner.

We believe that the foundation of our corporate strength rests on the concept of combining individual strengths through partnerships in caring so that our leadership, ingenuity, energy and resources may be fully dedicated to the task of meeting the needs of those we serve.
