Misericordia is recognized as one of the nation’s leading communities for children and adults with developmental disabilities, distinguished by its network of services and a continuum of care model. Misericordia began serving children with mental disabilities in 1954. Today, we support over 600 children and adults from diverse racial, religious and socioeconomic backgrounds, with disabilities ranging from mild or moderate to severe and profound. Programs include many residential options, job training and placement, an array of therapies, fitness and health guidance, social and recreational activities, and opportunities for spiritual growth. These are designed to help our residents achieve and maintain the highest level of independence possible.
