A Message From the Director

Dear Friends,
Welcome to Dorothy Bennett Mercy Center, the “small center with a big heart” in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.

The Center, founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1995 and located in the beautiful gardens of the Convent of Mercy is a hive of activity 6 days a week with After School, Adult Education and Seniors programs. Each school day, 45 children bring a great deal of energy and joy to the After School staff and the many volunteers who are there to assist them.  While we have many indoor activities including music and art, the children love to play in the gardens once homework is done – a safe and carefree environment for them.

We welcome you to stop by anytime, whether to inquire about our Adult Education programs (GED in Spanish, pre-GED, English as a Second Language and Computer Training) or the Seniors program.

Of course, we always welcome volunteers who wish to share their time and many skills with the children in the After School program or the adults in the Adult Education or Seniors programs.  Maybe, providing administrative support once a week would suit you and it would benefit us greatly!

Please give us a call or stop by to obtain more information and consider being a part of our wonderful Center!

In mercy,

Sister Breige Lavery, RSM
Executive Director
