Building Healthier Communities

Rooted deeply in our communities, we identify and fund opportunities to make lives better through comprehensive wellness initiatives. Using innovative approaches, we lead and collaborate to drive improved healthcare outcomes and to lower healthcare costs for individuals and communities.

Resource Mothers

Resource Mothers

The Resource Mothers program offers support to new mothers as they begin this new journey. The program responds to a critical need for preventive health care, health education and support services for low-income, high risk, pregnant and parenting women and their families. The goal is to enhance birth outcomes, promote healthy behaviors and empower the parent by assisting them with connections to various community services.

Parish Nursing

Parish Nursing

The mission of The Health Ministry / Parish Nursing Program of Mercy is to improve the health of the community, with an emphasis on people who face economic barriers to health care. For many program participants, the basic screenings provided at local houses of worship are their only point of contact with health care. The program serves a diverse range of congregations, and non-practicing members of the community are welcome.
