We've come a long way in serving our mission since 1955 thanks to the generous support from individuals and organizations in our community.
The support of the community has played a pivotal role in MERCI’s history as it continues to flourish and expand to meet the needs of those with developmental disabilities. MERCI has had its share of challenges, but the agency continues to thrive. Although the climate of human services continues to evolve, MERCI persists in its adherence to its mission statement to provide services to those diagnosed with developmental disabilities and to assist them in reaching their maximum potential. MERCI believes that despite their disabilities, they are capable of becoming productive members of their community.
Since 1955, MERCI has been meeting the needs of the developmentally disabled community throughout the San Gabriel Valley.
MERCI provides support to ensure that every consumer works to his or her potential as a member of the community. This is accomplished by an ongoing dialogue with careproviders and parents, as well as frequent trips into the community to acclimate consumers to everyday life. MERCI will continue to provide these services and work towards the empowerment of the developmentally disabled population of the East Los Angeles and San Gabriel Valley area.
