Who We Are

Strengthening and supporting families, Mercy Neighborhood Ministries continues its promise to the community – neighbor helping neighbor, transforming lives one person at a time.

Our Mission & Vision

Our vision and mission is to transform lives…

The Sisters of Mercy have worked in partnership with members of the Tioga-Nicetown community for more than 35 years, resulting in adult and child care programs. 

Our main goal is improving the quality of life for those we serve. As summarized with our motto “Neighbor helping neighbor… transforming lives, one person at a time”, we work to combat the barriers created during one’s experience of poverty and other economic challenges leading to economic stability and educational/career success in the future. Each program, initiative and service we offer aims to remove these barriers, ultimately breaking the cycle of poverty affecting many of our neighbors. With an emphasis on quality services and taking a human, person-centered approach, we created new programming efforts and continue to evolve our three core program areas to meet our goal.

Mission & Purpose

The mission of Mercy Neighborhood Ministries is to respond in a spirit of Mercy to the needs of the underserved in our community.

Consistent with the values and the vision of our founders – the Sisters of Mercy – the focus of this organization is to identify needs which are not being met by other groups, to respond to these needs over time, and to fulfill them in a collaborative and empowering way.
