Follow through is very important. It can mean the difference between a resident's success and failure. Casa Merced I Casa Merced II and Casa Merced III are our re-entry homes. These single-family residential homes are reserved for women who have finished the program at Veronica's Home of Mercy and are doing extremely well but are in need of some assistance until they finish school. These homes provide a more relaxed atmosphere and greater independence. The low rent and access to the support of the staff helps ease the women back into society.
We encourage our residents to keep in touch with us. Our staff, in-house classes and activities are readily available to our graduates. If they leave in good standing we invite them to come back and celebrate holidays and birthdays with us. This is especially helpful for those who have no family.
