Sr. Mary Ann Dirr, RSM founded Mercy Center in 1990 in a St. Pius V School classroom. Its community center is located in the Mott Haven section of the South Bronx.

Mercy Center helps women and their families move from isolation to connectedness, from poverty to economic self-sufficiency, from despair to hopefulness and from violent and oppressive family dynamics to healthy, respectful and mutually enriching relationships.

Programs and activities fill a wide range of needs. They include parenting and family-life skills, business and job skills, English as a Second Language and immigrant services, youth programs and social services and personal development activities.
