For over 35 years Mercy Hospice has been offering temporary residential services to approximately 40 women and their young children. Residents receive three meals a day, case management, and other support services.
In addition, a hot meal is offered daily to 50-70 homeless women residing on the street, with similar support services as well as an opportunity to use a restroom and take a shower. As a result, Mercy Hospice serves hundreds of meals each week, and provides groceries for growing children and their families in transition. Toiletries are needed to stock the much appreciated hot showers for the homeless. Under the guidance of Jerry and Kay Lafferty, St. Katharine’s has a generous history in providing casseroles and groceries to help the daily mission, as well as providing Christmas gifts through the Christmas tree program.
