In 1997, Sr. Rosemary Welsh and staff of healthcare providers from Mercy Clinic recognized an alarming number of women in violent situations. This called for urgent action and coincided with a request from the community to open a domestic violence shelter. In January 1998, the  opportunity was made possible with the awarding of Catherine’s Legacy Grant from the Sisters of Mercy. Through this grant, and additional in-kind donations and many individuals and families, Casa de Misericordia opened its doors on July 7, 1998.

This year- we commemorate 22 years since the opening of Casa de Misericordia’s doors.
