Meet Mercy Associate Mary Sliney. She is the executive director of The Way Home, a nonprofit dedicated to helping lower-income families and individuals obtain and keep safe, affordable housing throughout the state of New Hampshire.
“My quest in life was to love God and serve the poor,” she says, explaining how she came to know the Sisters of Mercy.
The experience of homelessness takes an incredible toll on a person: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. If you encounter someone who is homeless, show mercy. In these hot summer months, you might offer a cold bottle of water. Also, save the number for your local shelter or shelter hotline on your cell phone in case you see someone outside suffering from heat.
